LAT to Staff: Don’t Post Anything on FB That Would Embarrass Us

rume.jpgWe would never accuse the Los Angeles Times of being early adopters.

LA Biz Journal reports:

“Integrity is our most important commodity: Avoid writing or posting anything that would embarrass The Times or compromise your ability to do your job,” the committee stated.

Most interesting, the committee stated that employees should “assume that your professional life and your personal life will merge online regardless of your care in separating them.” Privacy tools that determine who can see and read what you post, the committee stated, have little meaning when publishing on a public Web site.

So this memo is preempting a reporter flashing his boobs on Facebook while holding up a copy of the Turner Diaries or something? The advent of MySpace was seven years ago…way to keep up.

Anyone think this is in the wake of those horrible Katie Couric photos?
