A lot of the time we turn to social media in order to vent and to let our true thoughts and feelings be shared with those that we are friends with or are following us. Sometimes this can back fire.
Even though you think you are in a safe and judgement free zone, there are many factors to consider when publishing a new social media post.
Here are 5 things you should think about when you go to post something new:
- Are you over exposed or being provocative?
- Are you using appropriate language?
- Is there any illegal activity?
- Are you complaining?
- Are you talking badly about others?
You maybe thinking, who cares, I can post what I want, or if you don’t like it then unfriend/unfollow me, but the truth of the matter is that this can ultimately affect your future when it comes to jobs, schools, etc. So stop and think before you post!
