I was taking a pic of the pool on holiday and got into a conversation with another holidaymaker. We were talking about our use of mobile devices and how we use them to consume and create content.
They told me a story about someone they worked with who, on returning to work, was asked to remove a picture of themselves from Instagram. It showed the colleague next to a holiday pool wearing a swimming costume.
The employers reason? Some of their stakeholders might see it and it could compromise the organisation as a result. The employer was a public sector organisation in the UK.
Are these rules reasonable? Is someone being over-officious? All comments welcome.
