There was an amusing case a few months ago of an employee corresponding with his HR department. FR wanted him to put in a medical certificate and he was loudly asserting his right to claim one day of sick leave without one. After a few e-mails back and forth the HR manager appended a snapshot of the employee's social networking page for the day in question: "F* work today, I can't be bothered... I'm still smashed from last night..."

So yes, it's good to keep your social web presence separate from work, but you still have to remember they're not in parallel universes :^)
