With social media basically taking over the world, sometimes it's nice to get a reminder about what is appropriate to share. So here are some guidelines you want to follow on your personal and professional social media platforms.
Restrain from sharing your personal travel plans -- wait to share your locations and photos until your home!
Safety, of course! Criminals monitor social media to see when you’re away from home, so that they can burglarize your house or scam you or your family and friends.
Do not post negative comments about others -- even if you delete it, it can be found. (Hello, screenshotting!)
You should always be on your best behavior behind the keyboard. Celebrities and athletes are the perfect examples of how past posts on social media haunt them. Remember the golden rule before you type -- treat others the way you want to be treated.
You might not think you are over-sharing -- but especially when you're feeling emotional, trying to resolve a conflict or you're just plain bored -- pause before posting. Do you really need to share that? Would it be better if you direct messaged someone instead? What about talking to them face to face? What about your future -- will this affect your career path? What would you say if your family member posted this instead?
