inappropriate work profile content

at work we have an intranet site on which we are all required to create a profile containing professional and (some) personal information. you also have to include a photo. you can add colleagues to your ''friends'' list too. lots of workplaces have these things. i think they're a bit shit but i go along with it so as not to attract attention.

one of my colleagues has no photo, no professional information and, under ''interests'' has listed only ''hunting''.

to be honest, that's all you need to know about him I reckon.

Ha! I like the cut of their jib.

I hate company shit like that. At least your colleague has a sense of humor (hopefully).


panus  said about 3 years ago:

i don't actually know who this person is, btw.

we had a 'who's the hottest male staff member' survey on our intranet for a while but it seems to have been taken off.

Add a photo of your arse, and under interests, add 'fisting'.

this is such a bullshit waste of company resources in response to the ''social network revolution''.

quick everyone! sign up to the work version of facefuck and we'll all work more collaboratively together on our projects.

no dickheads, that does not work. weirdly it falls flat in the workplace.

what also does not work is the sharepoint wiki portal you've developed for the division.

it's kinda comforting thought that, at the end of the day, your colleagues would prefer a face-to-face chat with you, or a phone call where they get to hear yr voice.

meet you in this thread in 15 years time though, and let's see how things have changed. by then gen i will have wrecked everything.

a few years ago i listed ''pretending to do work while surfing the internet'' as an 'interest', but the guy didn't put it online.

zachery. yammer schmammer. i mean really fuck off already.


anonymous  said about 3 years ago:

I've signed up, i get a email which i sometimes peruse and but mostly delete, and everyone else in my group does the same and continues to talk to each other as they did before.

everyone's a winner.

A profie I saw recently:

What are you up to? Being made redundant.

Interests: Having a job.


LoadMyRig  said about 3 years ago:

initially i was also lucky enough to get an email everytime anyone anywhere in our 4000+ person workforce added/edited anything on yammer.

thanks for turning that function off ITS. you clever clogses.
