Getting fired for posts on Facebook or Twitter has become so common that it almost seems old hat. But human ingenuity -- or foolishness -- and evolving social media technologies guarantee that people will find new ways to post their way out of a job. Look at what some are doing on Instagram.

A quick Web search shows people who post personally identifiable information, show or say where they work, and use the tag #worksucks, #calledinsick or, even better, #hatemyboss. Many didn't respond to AOL Jobs' request for comments, so it's not clear if their managers have seen these posts yet.
