Abstract

Miranda Shaw had decided to do a Google search on the two finalists for the open position in her company. Based on the photos she saw on her preferred applicant's Facebook page, she decided to hire the other applicant, whose Internet search returned no controversial results. But Shaw found herself wondering if it had been ethical for her to base her decision on a Facebook page, because she had not told either applicant that she would be using the Internet to research them.

Keywords: ethical issues, new technology, management of, ethics
