A few tips to pass on to your staff on the dangers of using Facebook:
One word of advice for the employer -- if you do allow Facebook access at work, block Facebook email using mail filters. At least then you don't have the problem of staff using work email addresses for Facebook. This simple step will then prevent the hacker from making the link between the user and the company they work for.
