Social Media Safety
Would you want your parents, friends, or boss to see what's on your Facebook page or Snapchat?
Smart Tips for Social Media:
- Utilize privacy settings so only people who are your friends or only certain friends can see your photos, statuses, and information.
- Don't approve everyone who wants to be your friend. Think about who you are allowing to see your information.
- Don't take photos if you are doing something you wouldn't want people to see. Don't post inappropriate photos of yourself or others on the internet. When possible, remove and untag yourself from photos that are inappropriate.
- Remember that nothing is truly deleted from the internet (including on Snapchat).
When it comes to finding a job, getting an internship, or gaining a leadership position on campus, people are going to be looking at your social media pages. You don't want a photo to get in the way. Think about the type of image and person you want to portray yourself as on the internet.
