Wow. That was some party.

Great pics, too. So what did grandma think of them? Before you post anything too personal to Facebook or Twitter, heed an expert’s advice.

“It’s best not to post anything that your grandmother wouldn’t like,” said Mark Perry, associate computer science professor at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ont. “Because it will come back to bite you at some point.”

Perry said you should not only be wary of what you post, but how you post it.

“They should pay close attention to their privacy settings,” Perry said when asked what employees should guard against to get in trouble at work.

And heads up: Watch those emails. If you’re sending one titled “jerk boss,” you might try “jerk beef” instead.

“There is software nowadays that can monitor email, so that it can search key words,” Perry said. “It will select that out of the ingoing and outgoing email to employees.”
