Like moss in a Northwest forest the economy hangs heavy over the heads of some social networkers who, in better times, might have been more blasé about their social media musings.

7 percent knew of a co-worker who had been fired for inappropriate posts
2 percent admitted a past post to Twitter, Facebook, or MySpace cost them a job opportunity
