Someone is shy

Steve hasn't completed a profile. Should we look for some other people?

Can social profiles get you hired or fired?
Mr. Yuan, first, don't discount yourself - being "only a college freshman" is actually an outstanding accomplishment. Many people WANT to be a 'college freshman,' but don't get the grades in high-school, or make the necessary effort. OK, with that said, your professor is most likely thinking of the social media sites like FaceBook, Linkedin, MySpace, twitter, Pinterest, etc. And the question beneath the topic title is most likely asking about positive or negative postings on "private" social sites and their interplay with business professionals looking to employ those individuals. Some college students post friendly pictures of weekend activities that may or may not sit well with prospective employers. And some employed individuals also post friendly pictures of weekend activities that may or may not sit well with their current employers. As an Adjunct Professor and an HR executive, I can tell you I've never fired someone for a social media site posting, but I have implemented punishment for some inappropriate comments made about the employer. I hope this comment is helpful; best of luck with your coursework. SL
