I read this post from Jon Acuff the other day, and completely agree with what he is saying.
When I meet new people, you want to know pretty much the first thing I do? (That you probably do too?)
I check them out online. I Google them. I check their Facebook page. See what they say on Twitter. Read their blog.
What we post online says a whole lot about us.
So, if I’m hiring an employee, you can bet one of the first things I’ll do is check their online presence. They might have a great resume, but their online presence speaks volumes on the type of employee/person they are.
This may be frowned upon, but we live in an online world so it is our reality.
So, I agree. Think about what you say before you post something online. What does it say about you?
A friend mentioned to me that he tells the kids at his school to only post something if it is positive and necessary. These sound like good tips to me too.
