The ‘dark side’ of social media

7 04 2011

No doubt that social media has created an environment where your information is not really yours once you hit the send button. That’s why I would always advocate that in whatever we do we must endeavour to remain ‘conscious’ and ‘alert’. So that the consequences of our thoughts, words and actions become ‘obvious’.

The attached link is to an article that highlights the negativity of social media due to carelessness on the part of individuals who paid no attention to their actions. It also highlights the steps organisations are taking in ensuring the integrity of the company is protected, even to the point of rejecting job applicants because of perceived ‘trends’ on their social media pages.

Either way, lessons for everyone.
