Complaining about your workplace, coworkers or boss
Even a simple text update or picture like “Bored at work” or “Need a desperate change in life” could make your boss think that you are complaining and not sure about your future in the company. Moreover, it is a bad way to brand yourself in the industry as it gives an impression of you as a not-so-ambitious and confused about where you’d like to be.
Use social media wisely. LinkedIn and Twitter are great networks to start a conversation with people in your industry. But don’t beg for a job or express your need for a job change!
Posting #partying pictures
A fun casual picture with you partying with your friends is fine. Things get worse when you post drunk selfies or a picture with drinks. And you’re bound to run into trouble especially if it’s a work day and you show up at work nursing a major hangover.
Participating in a controversial subject
Avoid participating and being a part of groups based on religion, race and politics. Your opinion could get offensive and could be a huge turn-off to your boss and colleagues. Most importantly, it could lead you in trouble at work especially if it’s a religion based issue.
Sharing personal content
Complaining about your spouse gives a rather bad impression universally. Keep relationship issues off social media and let your timeline throw up things people might genuinely be interested in knowing.
