This is a great excerpt from the referenced article: Fired on Facebook:

The importance of a personal brand is seldom well explained to juniors, and aspiring middle level careerists. It is nonetheless real. I certainly wish that I had done more of this in my mid 20s. I have had to involve HR on social networking related work posts with significant outcomes on more than a single occassion. 

FYI, my firm blocks are SNW execpt for DT.

Hrms. I just developed a new policy for all social networking sites. Simple: I wouldn't date anyone from the office, I wouldn't put anyone from the office (or other business contact) on my social networking flist.

Straight up for boss. Boss is now in the position of getting cranky over not invading my personal life because the prohibition is person-neutral.

"I have everything to hide. Just like I hide any revealing photos by not posting them on the internet in the first place, and I don't kiss and tell, and I limit who I bore with my medical sagas, I draw boundaries for purposes of professionalism. There aren't any wild party photos or rants about work, it's generally quite boring. However, work is work, family and non-work social is simply best kept separate. It's nothing personal, it's an over-arching policy."

Good summary -
