More Reason NOT to 'Friend' Coworkers on Facebook

Allen Smith over at SHRM.org has an article on the recent federal case out of Virginia involving a deputy sheriff who was terminated after "Liking" the page of his boss' opponent in an upcoming election.  The deputy claimed his "Like" was protected speech protected under the First Amendment but the district court disagreed holding merely "Liking" a Facebook page is insufficient speech to merit Constitutional protection.  The rest of Allen's article can be found here and is incredibly worth a read!
