Brit teenager gets fired via Facebook!

A teenage schoolgirl has become the first in Britain to get fired from her job through social networking site Facebook.

Chelsea Taylor, 16, who worked part-time at the Lancashire Tea Room, in Leigh, Greater Manchester, was left stunned when she logged on to the site and found a letter of dismissal waiting for her.

Social networks are increasing being recognized as recruitment tools though the debate about their intrusive and almost all pervasive reach still continues.
Prospective employers have also been using social networking sites to do background checks. But they havent been used as a medium of terminating an employee till now.

Is this an acceptable way of sacking an employee?
or is it going to be the way of the future ?
