You are right there Grinner, but the ethical part comes into play when an employer Demands or Sneaks into your profile and snoops before, during or after the hiring process. Yes it is somewhat public, but leaving your car or house door unlocked may make it easy for someone to enter, but that doesn’t give them the right. Demanding to search your home and your mail and email as a prerequisite to hiring or maintaining employment is also wrong. So the whole ethics part fall under the “If your boss is your friend and you WANT to invite him/her in that is free choice, but if not then what right do they have to demand access or sneak in through the back door?”
Remember you cannot control everything other people post, and you often wind up with people or posts you’re networking with that you’d never actually hang out with, if you’re looking for business….
