SAN FRANCISCO -- A new survey finds Americans are being cautions when it comes to posting relationship status and updates on social media like Facebook. The biggest contributing factor, according to the data, whether or not they are friends with co-workers.
Zoosk.com found that 60 percent of Americans are cautious about posting relationship updates because they are worried what their co-workers might think.
The site also found that 64 percent of Americans would be more likely to post romantic updates if they were not friends with co-workers.
Also indicated in the data, almost 40 percent of Americans don't post updates or photos to social media because their co-workers might see the information.
Social media experts say it's okay to post updates but you need to use your filter. They say, if you wouldn't say it in a job interview, don't post it to Facebook.
You can create group settings on social networking sites that only allow a certain amount of your friends to see your posts. That way you can keep co-workers eyes out of items you don't want them to see.
