It what could be named as cyber stalking, enterprise or simply head hunting, it seems that Japanese bank Nomura used Facebook to hire some former employees of Lehman Brothers.

Following the collapse of the US investment bank last year, Nomura has reportedly hired about 60 per cent of the graduate trainees which were let go by Lehman after it went bankrupt.

Facebook apparently played a vital role in enabling the Japanese bank to locate the trainees it wanted to hire.
Proof, if it were needed, that if you are made redundant or are angling to be head hunted, it is best to keep your profile secure with the correct privacy settings and try to keep your picture in the best possible taste.
