    SimpleWash is a good idea, because on a daily basis do I hear of people in other occupations using (mainly) Facebook for tracking down incriminating evidence (in an insurance company, for example) when they suspect fraud. As well as where I work, we use it once in a while to track down "bullying" and other such behaviour of certain individuals. But, really, if you're clever enough you'll know to keep your social media private to those you're willing to share it with, i.e.: 'real' friends, and completely separate work from play, so to speak. Personally, I wouldn't dream of adding ANY of my work colleagues as a friend on Facebook - for any information about what I did over the weekend that I want them to know about, I'll discuss with them over morning coffee - not that I'm one of those people who perform a 'check-in' at every place I visit (in fact, I've never checked-in on Facebook unless someone else tagged me), nor do I update my status with "Going to the shop", "Eating an ice cream" every 10 minutes.

    I've just realised this has turned into a bit of a rant. Sorry.
