Update Your Privacy Settings!
Remember, privacy settings change! Maintain your privacy by periodically making sure that all your settings are up-to-date.

This includes Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or other social media tools you use!

Privacy settings not only prevent unknown people from seeing information that you don't wish to share, but it can also help prevent identity theft or potential stalkers!
Is this something you would want your mom, dad, younger sibling, or professor to see?

While you might think only your friends are going to read your tweet about how drunk you were last night or see the photos of you holding a beer, you can never be too sure where that information will end up.

The Library of Congress is currently saving all tweets (regardless of users privacy settings), SnapChat photos do not disappear after 10 seconds, and courts can and do subpoena text message histories.

If it's not something you want showing up in a news story about you either tomorrow or in 20 years, avoid sharing the information.
Ask yourself - who is going to see this?
Remember, the police use social media too!
Understand what impacts your reputation
What you choose to
share and support
What your friends
choose to share
and support
What it appears
you share
and support
Even if you maintain a private online account, your friends could be saying inappropriate things about you, posting embarrassing photos, or wreaking digital havoc on your future. Also, if your friends talk about drugs and alcohol 24/7, you very easily could be linked to that type of behavior. Pay close attention to who you are friends with online and consider deleting an acquaintance that may say or do unsuitable things online.
Whatever you post on a social media site can be accessed & viewed by virtually anyone.

Regardless of how careful you are in establishing privacy settings, your content can easily be made available to those outside of your preference settings through screenshots or hacking.

If you wouldn't feel comfortable with the whole world associating the information with you, you're better off just not sharing.

***Remember - items on the internet are permanent; even after you may choose to delete them, the information is out there.
Intimate moments are just that - intimate.
Think twice before sharing personal moments or thoughts
Regret can happen with just one click
Save yourself from a social media hangover
This tip goes hand-in-hand with avoiding inappropriate content. No one makes the best decisions after a night of drinking. Save yourself some regret and stay away from social media when under the influence.

Similarly, avoid posting content (pictures, status updates, or otherwise) that prove you have broken the law or the BGSU Code of Student Conduct.

Find a balance
It's best to avoid complaining or speaking overly negative about school, current or previous jobs, classmates, or professors online. You never know who that information is going to get back to or the impact it could have for you.

If you need to vent - talk to a trusted friend in private about the situation and keep it off the internet.

Make sure you remember to write about positive things as well! Only posting when your unhappy can make your digital persona seem a bit angry and disgruntled.
angry birds may be a fun game but it's not the attitude
you want associated with yourself
Make sure your digital persona is true to who you are
Make sure your job and education information on your social networking profile matches the information on your resume.

Forgetting to update information on you social networking sites can make it appears as though you are misrepresenting yourself.

While not every company performs social media background checks, it is becoming more common.

Understanding the world we live in
information from 2009
Let's Get
With the role of technology constantly increasing in all of our lives, it has never been more important to understand the appropriate way to utilize technology and social media.

Today, your digital persona and identity is just as important as your physical one. Landing an internship, getting accepted to graduate school, and being offered a job can all be impacted by how you represent yourself online.

Your actions today will impact your tomorrow. This presentation will give you some helpful tips for understanding how to make the most of your social media use and how to avoid some common mistakes.
Why all this matters
Because more and more companies are using social media both to recruit as well as perform background checks, keeping your personal and professional social media lives separate is important.

While Twitter and Facebook are great ways to keep in touch with friends and family, these sites should not be used for the job and internship search. Utilize LinkedIn to coordinate all your career contacts.

For more information and help establishing your LinkedIn account, reach out to BGSU's Career Center.
Using the social media tool that fits the job
Stay one step ahead and avoid any unfortunate surprises coming up when a potential employer.

A quick online search can save you from some awkward conversations down the road in the hiring process. A search will allow you to see some (although probably not all) of information that is publicly available about you.

Having the time to work on managing any questionable content regarding yourself is extremely beneficial. Furthermore, if you find any content that is outside of your control, the ability to be prepared to address the information upfront is invaluable.

Potential employers are looking for candidates that are responsible. An embarrassing picture does not have to ruin your job search if you are able to handle the situation in a mature and professional manner.

Focus on what you can control
Sometimes when you Google yourself, you come across information that you aren't thrilled about people seeing. The best way to counteract any of that content is to generate positive information that ranks higher on search engines.

Sites that rank high in search engines include Facebook, Linked In, and Twitter. Making sure you have positive images on those sites can help make sure negative content from outside sources is lower down in the search history. This includes pictures.

A great way to make sure there is a positive image of you right away in a Google search is to create a Google Profile, which we will talk about next.
navigating the world of social media can be difficult
A google profile allows you to have more control over the information that other people can see about you. You can choose to include biographical information, photos, contact information (be careful with this one - remember what we discussed in tip #1 - privacy), and you can also link other websites to your profile.

Google profiles has also developed Google Plus. This allows you to create different circles of acquaintance types (i.e. a college friends circle, a high school friends circle, a family circle, etc.) and control the content you share with different groups.
Using Google to your advantage
When potential employers are looking at your social media sites, just what are they concerned about finding?
When surveyed, here is what HR professional admitted to screening for:
• Concerns about the candidate's lifestyle 58%
• Inappropriate comments and text written by the candidate 56%
• Unsuitable photos, videos and information 55%
• Inappropriate comments or text written by friends and relatives 43%
• Comments criticizing previous employers, coworkers or clients 40%
• Inappropriate comments or text written by colleagues or work acquaintances 40%
• Membership in certain groups and networks 35%
• Discovered that information the candidate shared was false 30%
• Poor communication skills displayed online 27%

Just be yourself
One of the main reasons people utilize social media is to express themselves. Part of self-expression is taking responsibility for our thoughts and opinions. Therefore, you should not post using an alias or an identity other than you own.

Ask yourself:
If I don't want this information associated with my name, is it really a good idea to post it in the first place?

And don't forget - information can get back to you even if it isn't posted under your name. This is especially true on a college campus where you are signed into a University wireless network that can track your IP address based on activity.
Always remember the Golden Rule
If you wouldn't want something to be said about you online (remember, online posts are permanent), don't say it about someone else. As such, profanity, obscene pictures and/or comments, and personal attacks are not appropriate.

Furthermore, if you wouldn't say it to someone in person, it probably isn't a good idea to post about it online. Social media should not be used to defame, attack, or disrespect other people.

Social media should serve as a way to keep in touch, to share ideas with others, and to help make information more accessible. Using it as a tool for bullying and harassing others is unnecessary and unacceptable.

Unfortunately, social media makes it easy to bully and harass other people from a distance, using technology to hide behind. However, for the victim, the bullying becomes pervasive and inescapable as technology is a part of our every day lives.
