In this modern day and age, many businesses respect the right of its employees, as private citizens, to engage in public debate on political and social issues, whether on the radio, the internet, in newspapers or on television. This extends to their employees’ use of social media. Social media enables individuals to communicate via the internet, sharing information and resources. Social media sites, such as Facebook, are a social utility that connect people with family, colleagues and friends.At the same time, many businesses expect their employees to fulfil their obligations as employees, and to uphold an expected level of professional conduct and ethical behaviour when using social media.
