Never Post These 10 Things on Social Media | How to Protect Yourself?
I recently read an article of Kim Garst (one of my digital marketing mentors) and found it really interesting and now sharing her points with you:
Never Post These 10 Things on Social Media
- Offensive content – such as racial slur, insulting images, crude humor, offensive language etc.
- Gosip or attack against specific people
- Claiming others’ content as yours – For example, downloading a video from YouTube and publishing it on Facebook.
- Speaking negatively about an employee, boss or colleague
- Your upcoming business trips / holiday plan – if only your friends know about it that’s okay; however, don’t share it publicly.
- Private conversation (without permission)
- Your confidential personal information
- Financial information
- Updates without verification / confirmation – sorry, but many people share stories/pictures without verifying them.
- Anything you don’t want to see online forever – whatever you publish, assume it’s out there permanently. So, think twice before posting anything!
