5 years ago, a poll of companies showed that 56% said they had access to everything on their employee's FB. If your work can see it even though you don't have anyone at work "friended."
....yeah, anything you post can be obtained.

Even with LinkedIn anyone can find you and wreak havoc with the work associates you have by posting stuff on YOUR professional network. Contemplating ditching that as well.

Agree with Steel and Bart. Get another hobby. Gardening, volunteering here on wet clean ups etc.

I'm sorry, but this is just another case of one size does not fit all.

It all depends on the specifics of one's situation. For those of us with many friends on several continents, and with close family and relatives hundreds to thousands of miles away, FB is essential for keeping in touch and sharing photos. For three years now I've been sharing pictures of my son, my (new) wife and I for my parents, who live in Europe, to see. They are so used to it and enjoy it so much they would be upset if I stopped. Distribution and sharing, many times, is restricted as appropriate. Also, posting can be restricted/kept to a minimum of relevant and benign information, and, as such, will have zero effect on the course and outcome of the divorce proceedings.

As for LinkedIn: it makes even less sense to drop out than FB, especially if you are looking for a new job.

Again, it all depends on how and to what extent one uses social media. Completely dropping off the radar just so that you don't, somehow, make matters worse in your divorce is silly - unless your social media activity is reckless and excessive.
Whenever you think divorce is bad, remember there are worse things than divorce.

One aspect that fits all....

When something goes wrong, there isn't social media post to use against you.

It's not just about divorce. You have no way of knowing how what you post today will be used against you tomorrow.

I share photos with friends & family via Google drive.

Create a folder, load it up, share by granting access via email.

FB is essential for nothing. "The world's largest role-playing game."

It's not just FB. All social media.

Consider Philando Castiles GF. She's riding in a car and her BF gets shot. One of the first things to happen is they subpoena all her social media, looking for incriminating items.

People lose theirs jobs every day for innocent random postings.

I know a young man that recently had an employment offer receded because of a years old picture posted to FB. He was offered the job and a person he beat out of the job, who would have to report to him, dug up an old FB photo of him and some frat boys flashing 'the shocker' and went to HR.


Post whatever you want but know that you cannot know the manner in which it can be used against you in the future.
