Every day we see people, friends, family members go to their phone and visit their social media sites. Social media has played a big part of our society today because, through social media, we are able to connect with people who are not near us.
Through social media, we are able to share our achievements, our pain, and our frustration. It is a place where we feel most comfortable sharing our life stories because it doesn’t need a direct contact to people. For this very reason, many people overshare their personal stories and frustration online, and sometimes it turns into something inappropriate. Let us all be aware that everything we post online is permanent and can be seen by others.
Universities and employers might look at your social media sites for information about you as a person, outside the boundaries of a resume or academic testing. When they see inappropriate things on your profile, they may not be willing to accept you. Not only will they see your profile but comments made on other post is public to anyone. That is why social media can build or destroy you and your career in the future.
It is true that the purpose of social media is so we can present ourselves freely to our friends and family but at the same time let us think about our posts first before we post it online.To sum it up, be sure that whatever we post online are relevant.
