Linked – Your LinkedIn “Likes” May Be Hurting Your Career

Because your “likes” place content into your connections’ LinkedIn streams, you should think of it more like a “share” button. Whether intended or not, each “like” is a message that you believe this content will be of interest to others in your professional network.

The advice in the article really applies to all social media where people you work with, or might potentially want to work with, can see what you’re sharing. I’m not going to say you shouldn’t have some fun on social media, it helps make you seem like more of a human being when you do, but think about what you decide to follow or like, and whether you want to explain it to your boss, or in a job interview.
