Facebook: How Much Do You Want the World to See?

January 1808:30 AM
 

Facebook burst onto the scene about 15 years ago, and people have been sharing every tiny little detail about themselves ever since. Only in the last few years has an awareness developed that maybe we shouldn’t be sharing so much information about ourselves. In some cases, the damage is done. People have been hacked, have lost their jobs, and some have lost their lives because of a Facebook post. However, the number of active Facebook users continues to rise, now over 1 billion. Facebook doesn’t appear to be going away, so how can we navigate these seemingly uncharted waters? There are two main areas to look for when dealing with Facebook. The first is privacy. How much information are you putting on Facebook? Who gets to view that information? Is any of that information sensitive data? The second area is reputation. Are you posting that drunk photo of you at your friend’s bachelorette party? Will your employer see the picture you are about to post? Is what you are about to post going to endanger your job or your safety in any way? This world is about how to navigate Facebook in a world where everyone seems to be posting every little tiny detail about themselves. Facebook itself is not an evil. Like all tools, is how it is used that matters. view article  arw
