Man Fired For Using The Like Button On Facebook

Your "likes" on Facebook are not constitutionally protected. If you work for Pepsi and you "like" Coke's Facebook page, expect to be called on the carpet. wink

According to a ruling by Federal District Court Judge Raymond A. Jackson, you absolutely can be fired for using that Like button. "Simply liking a Facebook page is insufficient," wrote Jackson in his ruling. "It is not the kind of substantive statement that has previously warranted constitutional protection."
