Summary:

The fundamental function of Facebook (and other social networking sites, such as Twitter) is allowing “friends” to share information. Friends are people who have agreed to communicate with and allow one another some level of access to personal information. Anyone with access to the internet can join Facebook, the most popular social networking site, and connect with contacts. As of June 2017, Facebook claimed more than 2 billion monthly active users. In healthcare, Facebook posts can influence the hiring process, violate patient privacy, and result in termination of employment. This module informs healthcare professionals of the risks of social networks, which break down the walls separating our personal and professional lives.

Objectives:

The purpose of this program is to make healthcare professionals aware of the risks of social networks, which break down the walls separating our personal and professional lives. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss how Facebook posts can lead to loss of employment
  • Explain two ways that using Facebook in the hiring process can pose legal risks for employers
  • Describe three reasons why Facebook pages can lead to not getting hired
