Don’t brag about the court case your Dad has just won against his former employer.
When Dana Snay violated this essential Social Media rule, she unwittingly breached a confidentiality agreement and cost her father his $80,000 settlement.
Snay’s 1200 Facebook friends were told ““Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver,” Dana Snay posted days later to her 1,200 Facebook friends. “Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.”. When Gulliver found out against the post, they refused to pay a penny, and the decision has been backed up by the Court of Appeal.
Anyone with children approaching Social Media age would do well to pay heed to this cautionary tale.
