Social Media: Friend or Foe?

Posted on October 1, 2011 at 1:19 PM
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.

Minerva, I think it's friend. Because through this site we can be connected with our friends and the people who live in abroad to them it's like a blessing. Moreover, the online entrepreneurs use the site for advertising and it works more powerfully than any other media because it has a huge community who are visiting the page regularly. Thank 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.

This all-important essay is supposed to convince admission officers, whom teenagers have probably never met, that the writer represents the right match for a school.
