Social Media has come upon the world as an excellent form of keeping in touch with others, especially the ones that you may not have the opportunity to see very often. From the moment that I ventured into the world of Social Media, I have always held to the opinion that you should not communicate anything that is highly controversial or could come back to haunt you.
Thus far, that has been a very good rule to live by. And I hope that my children will heed my advice and follow that rule when their time comes.
The following article (http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/when-cleaning-up-your-facebook-can-lead-67735/?utm_source=LU_Emails) is a prime example of how not following this train of thought can get you into trouble. It cost the plaintiff millions in his settlement and also cost the attorney, as well.
So, if you are reading this, please heed my advice. It pays to “keep it clean” in all facets of life, particularly in the world of social media. You never know who will be watching!
