NEW YORK (AP) — Beyonce is making Super Bowl weekend performances something of a habit.

A year after performing for the big game at the Superdome in New Orleans, Beyonce performed for a smaller crowd Saturday night as Jay Z brought his wife out for a surprise cameo during his concert for DirecTV’s “Super Saturday Night” party on the eve of the Super Bowl.

Dressed in a slinky black lace dress, Beyonce sang her hit “Drunk In Love,” which, of course, her superstar husband guest stars on. As he rapped, she danced in his face, and when the smoldering song ended, the two embraced, and shared a kiss.

Black America Web

The correlation between your Facebook page and how it affects your employer’s perception of you has grown exponentially since the inception of social media years ago. The good news is most employees and candidates for employment have learned valuable lessons from horror stories of people getting fired or reprimanded due to inappropriate posts, whether personal or professional in nature.

On top of making personal judgments about an employee, some employers are scanning Facebook pages to pre-screen and ascertain the possible productivity capabilities of a future employee based upon how many times per day or per hour they post on social media.
