Need to remember the prison is ours we just let them stay there. So none of this it's there house or own space. You can't go to a hotel and spark up?

I vaguely remember some movie where tons of missing people were returned to the planet including Glen Miller although he was slightly changed and now played reggae

In some YOI they do get gifts,socks or little stocking filler type things. Staff will usually get a longer dinner there will be a little fewer staff on over the whole day because bang up is usually earlier. You will tend to find its harder to bang up the more difficult cons near the end of your day over the festive period.

Facebook vetting?

Post by piotrasoff » Sun Jul 16, 2017 3:09 pm

Hello
Waiting for development/re-take day.
I wonder how they do facebook vetting? Looking for person named as me / using same e-mail? Checking all public comments?
Maybe the best way to stay clear and safe would be deleting facebook account?

I think deleting is going too far, but that's just my opinion

while I was job hunting from June last year to September, I "deactivated my Facebook account" for that entire 4 months job hunting
You can deactivate your FB account temporarily and choose to come back whenever you want.

To deactivate your account:

Tap and scroll down
Tap Account Settings > Security
Tap Deactivate in the bottom right
If you deactivate your account, your profile won’t be visible to other people on Facebook and people won’t be able to search for you. Some information, such as messages you sent to friends, may still be visible to others.

If you’d like to come back to Facebook anytime after you’ve deactivated your account, you can reactivate your account by logging in with your email and password. Your profile will be restored in its entirety (ex: friends, photos and interests). Remember, you'll need to have access to the login email address or phone number for your account in order to reactivate it.
because I didn't want my prospective new employers looking me up on FB, it is a good half way measure because while the months go by, all your Facebook stuff that you accrued etc for 8-10 years, tonnes of pics and everything on there that you would like to keep hold of as really they are the only place they are stored ARE SAFE AND SOUND (but locked down)

As soon as I got my next job ..... I waited a couple of weeks more, then reactivated the FB A/C! SWEET, worked like a charm and none of the 45 interviews I went to for a new job could say "We looked up your Facebook A/c" I was more than happy
I would say Deactivate your FB account, you can leave it deactivated forever if you want to (which is the same as deleted)

Thanks for your answer.
I think its gone too far when setting your social media profile as "private" is not enough.

Do the vetting team actually check people out on fb?

To see if your hiding anything or if you've ever been part of a movement or involved with the police for anything same as the police they dig deep on vetting and cover almost everything

So have they got some kind of special access rights to snoop on people's fb?

If setting your profile to "private" (so only your friends can see your photos/posts and you do not post work-releated stuff) is not enough, then it goes too far. It means they can reject or sack you because of your personal opinion and private life, no matter its legal or not.

Whats next, checking your thoughts through hypnosis?

I think it's probably a smart move as a lot of info can be gleaned from fb

Yes they check facebook
They check for far right activities as well as posts/comments for things like racism.
They would have no more access than anyone else has in line with your privacy settings
