posted by Brian Taylor - 

34% of companies have either fired or disciplined an employee over  something they posted on social media.  And it's even more common when  it comes to HIRING people.

70% of human resource managers said checking people's social media is  part of their hiring process. And 57% have rejected someone because of  something they found.  Here are the top five things they find that can  ruin your chances at landing a job . . .

1.  Inappropriate photos or videos.  40% have ruled someone out because of it.

2.  Posts about drinking or using drugs, 36%.

3.  Bigoted comments about race, gender, or religion, 31%.

4.  Something besides drugs that suggests criminal behavior, 30%.

5.  Something that shows you lied about your qualifications, 27%.

Don't play it safe by deleting all your accounts though.  47% of hiring  managers said you're less likely to land an interview if they can't  find you online.  But thinning out your posts might be a good idea.  12% said they've rejected someone simply because they posted too much and  seemed OBSESSED with social media.
