social media and work

Millions in the UK use social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to communicate and organise large parts of their personal lives online.

Work is such a big part of our lives that it is only natural some of it will filter into social conversations and interactions online. Since the explosion of social media use, many people are making much more of their private lives public than before through continuously searchable words, images, sound files and videos.
