It's important to be careful with what you put on Facebook and Twitter.

One day you may be looking for a job and your potential boss may get a gander at your Facebook page. Will they like what they see?

The survey found that 39 percent of companies use sites like Facebook and Twitter to research job candidates. And hiring managers identified six types of posts that made employers less likely to hire a candidate:
