Social Media: Friend or Foe?

Social Media:  Friend or Foe?
I decided to search my name on the web and I was surprise about the information that was out there.  It is giving me an opportunity to assess what I should keep in the public domain or reserve some information for private/personal friends to see.  Technology has created a means for people to sit at home and be connected to millions of people with the click and send bottom.  We can now share our feelings and frustrations about family, friends, co-workers, relationships, and a night out with the girls or guys, your imagination is the limit. As we sit typing and clicking, sometimes we might even dramatize an event or a mood.  For example, “I need a drink after dealing with my boss today.”  “I am going to kill myself if I get another call from my Ex.” Or “I have been up all night doing my thing; I do not know how I am going to get through the day.”  So the question is would you want potential employers to get to know you through social media? Would you want to lose a potential roommate because they or their parents have searched the web and found questionable information about you?  Think about ways you can build an online profile that will help you obtain a job, advance your goals in other areas of your life, rather than causing a door to be slam!
What can be done to clean up potential problems on social media sites?
1.      Check out what’s on your site.  Is it painting a true and responsible picture of you?
2.      Material you just want your friends to see should be set up with privacy settings.
3.      If you have pictures of a “wild night” of partying, beers drinking, etc., remove them from the public domain.
4.      Remove posts of a “personal nature” from the public domain.
5.      Be careful of who you “friend”, especially clients, students, or business customers.
6.      Remember, we are linked-in to the world through our friends! Do we want others to know we have friends with a questionable past?
Therefore, using a search engine such as Yahoo, Google, Bing yourself, assess your information, is it the find of profile you want potential business associates, employers, and people you have intimate relationship to make of you.

It has been old saying that every technology has pros and cons. You are absolutely correct that one should take all the necessary precautions while uploading anything on Facebook or any other social media site.

essaymama review on Wednesday, October 03, 2018 2:36 AM
I do agree that the social media is becoming anti social. We as users experience the different ways that show that the purpose of social media, which is to socialize is now being defeated. Today there is this social media hate that we call. Social media hate the prevalence or proliferation of hate speeches online that targets a person's ethnicity, gender, race and other properties that comprises the identity of an individual person. Thank you for sharing this, I really appreciated this post
