I don't share any social networking info with anyone at my job and none of my social network accounts are in my birth name or have any links to anything that anyone at my work could see, unless I tell them. I don't have any co-workers connected to any of my social network profiles. Most people should consider similar practices to be on the safe side.

This is all part of how Apple makes keynotes so special and each product launch is so amazing. The secrecy factor is huge for them. And it works flawlessly every time. do you really think that Apple tells their sales associates about top secret products? They find out the same day the press does.
