Know this, when you are using social media, you are choosing to broadcast yourself to the world. Or, you choose to broadcast a false perception of you.
Here’s another twist to this, you can even choose to broadcast who you REALLY are when people who know you are not looking. At the end of the day this isn’t really a privacy issue as much as it’s a character issue.
What does your Facebook and Twitter page say about you!? What is LinkedIn telling about your professional background!? Are you someone that employers or perfect strangers can trust or are you someone that makes the choice to use Facebook as a mind dump?
For me, I choose to put my best foot forward and use Facebook for two purposes, promoting cartoondailynews.com and sharing words of encouragement, words of wisdom and keeping up with friends and family. However, I am also seriously considering shutting down Facebook because I don’t use it as much as I used too.
As of late, I only updated it to change the primary picture above along with my profile picture.
