Although I am not a Facebook fan per se, I have been enticed into it by personal and online friends. It has become a mecca for business networking, too. As such, I believe most online users, eventually are drawn into the social media sites. At the time of my layoff, I was advised by the agency helping me find another job, to be very circumspect about what I share, as today, employers "google" potential new hires for information that can enhance or destroy job opportunities. On the local news today, an IT expert advised all social media participants to think of their webpage friends as gathered together in a large auditorium and only reveal what you are comfortable with the entire group knowing. The expert also advised never revealing someone's elses personal confidences. It is only the right of the individual to share as they see fit. Another suggestion relates to photographs, in that it is advisable to always wait before posting any photos, giving the decision at least an hour, rather than hastily publishing something that can't be taken back. It doesn't seem that this basic, obvious advise should have to come from an expert, but apparently "thinking before acting" continues to be our own worst enemy.
