Do You Want the World to See?

Everyone, especially those leery of social media, talks about privacy concerns. As well we should be. When we post/publish something on a social media site, or anywhere on the web, we need to be prepared that this is now out there for all of the world to see. For this reason, it is crucial that we familiarize ourselves with the privacy policy on each social media site we participate.

Also, follow these simple guidelines:

• Never write something you wouldn't want your mother, pastor, best friend, or employer to see or read.
• Do not bad mouth your employer or employees. It is unprofessional and could cost you your job.
• Make sure you know and are comfortable with your privacy settings.
• Do not feel obligated to accept everyone as a friend, connection, or other. Share information with who YOU want to share.
• Remember that you have control of your online identity. It is a reflection of who you are personally and professionally. What are you portraying?
