I removed from my social media a lot of the things to do with video games, because I'm assuming companies wouldn't like that. Is that true?

For example, my profile picture was a picture of me playing a game. However, I changed it to just a picture of me. I feel like companies might look at my social media and think "oh he plays video games so he's probably distracted and immature".

    Not true. Employers expect that employees do "something" in their spare time. Playing video games in one hobby. It could be seen "in" your favor. It just depends.

    If I as an employer I'd rather see a photo of a potential employee playing a video game than sprawled out in a compromising position while drunk out their brain or posting racially abusive stuff etc.
