Can time stamps get you in trouble at work?

Facebook_putzImagine, if you will, that you updated your Facebook status during work. There is a time stamp next to your status. Your boss can see that you were on Facebook during work hours. Do you worry?

Someone brought this up to me in conversation and asked if there was a way to remove the time stamp.

Facebook will always show a time stamp for your status. There's no way to remove it. It's not a worry for me, but I can see how it might be for some people. It will also always show a time stamp when you post on someone's wall. However, you can take off the time stamp on your news feed and wall for all other Facebook actions.

  1. Click on Settings
  2. Click on "manage" next to Privacy
  3. Click on "News Feed and Wall"
  4. On the bottom of the left-hand column there is a check box you can un-check that says "Show times in my Wall"
