Diary of LagosMum | Nanny using FaceBook?
Nanny on FaceBook?
What do you do or how do you feel when you notice that your domestic staff has a Facebook account? Mums not sure how many of you have had this happen to you? But here I was on my Facebook page when I get a friend suggestion…I notice it was my nanny’s name but not being sure I click on the picture and low and behold it is my nanny. In a very happy looking shot and to top it off she took the picture in my compound (I know it is my compound from the background) I also see in the background the children’s slide.
Wow so it is definitely her and she does look quite “fly” and I have a multiple thoughts running through my head. One of them being that the photo shows that it was uploaded a week ago and it was uploaded via a mobile device…So next question is whether she is able to access the internet through her phone? We do have the wireless internet on most of the time at home and we don’t have a security password.
So I continue on the fact finding mission finding out how many friends she has, her interest shows “interested in men”, her status shows that she is in a relationship, I browse through her friends to see who they are and how many.
So question is what do I do? do I discuss this with her? is she entitled to her rights and its not my place to say anything? I am thinking of the security concerns of her being on Facebook…putting pictures up there, meeting people, men luring her and or asking for pictures of the house, the children. All sorts of thoughts are running through my head.
Do I become her friend on Facebook????
I need your advise here what would you do how would you handle this? Do I lock my internet at home? Do I mentioned it to her? do I use it as an opportunity to train her on the responsible uses of Facebook and ask her how she uses the site pointing out the safety do’s and dont’s…
