Social Networking

Social networking isn’t just social. You also need to consider your privacy and personal protection.

Guard Your Reputation

  • Many employers check social network sites before hiring.
  • Closely manage who can access your accounts and what they can see.

Stay Legal

  • Your online posts can get you into legal trouble.
  • Be sure to conduct yourself online as you would face-to-face.
  • Be civil.

Be Security Conscious

  • It’s increasingly possible to connect your online activities with your real-life identity.
  • To combat spam, phishing, cyberbullying, stalking, and sexual predators, be very careful about your privacy settings.
  • Before you install applications and widgets, be aware that they might change your privacy settings.
  • The more “they” know about you, the more vulnerable you are.
