Today I took the time to listen to Episode 4 of the Work Check podcast. If you haven't heard it yourself, go check it out: https://link.chtbl.com/workcheck?sid=social.twitter.season2.050422
Personally I thought this was a really good topic to debate, and while I'm listening to the arguments presented by both debaters, I found myself agreeing with both of them the entire way.
From the "PRO" side, I would agree that I think that as technology continues to change we need to change and adapt with it. I also agree that I have had many positive interactions with co-workers & former co-workers through social media.
From the "CON" side, I completely understand the feeling of wanting to keep some things private away from co-workers, and trying to maintain a professional and personal version of yourself.
From my own commentary on both sides, working for a cyber-security company, privacy is a bit of an illusion on social media. If you want to limit the audience, then you need to actively limit the audience yourself. I also generally only add co-workers to social media that I would likely interact with in some form outside of work hours.
Ultimately, I came to the same conclusion that @Christine P_ Dela Rosa did as the judge for this debate and that was that based on the question asked, I would agree with the "PRO" side.
I'd love to know what others thought of this episode!
