How Social Media Affects Your Identity
By: Wahid Shafique and Ashley Steeves
According to a recent pew poll,
94% of teenagers (ages 12 to 17) use Facebook and more than 26% use Twitter

and many don't know
how to properly
handle their online lives

Why should you care?
is one, short
term reason
“Be careful what you post on Facebook...Whatever you do, it will be pulled up again later somewhere in your life.”

-Barack Obama

“Whatever you do, it will be pulled up again later somewhere in your life.”
is one reason
Tips on how to improve your
online presence
restrict certain friends and the public from viewing your online (or facebook) profile
Get with the program!
Don't post personal info!

cellphones numbers and
emails should not be
publicly broadcast, especially
if you are a teen.

And keep in mind that your
information is forever, sometimes
simply deleting something does
not guarantee that its really gone
When companies hire you
they often check your
online activity
So what?
A Carnegie Mellon University study
not only showed this, but also revealed how employers discriminated against potential employees
While this study was initial, it at least shined
a light on how companies manipulate social
media. Religious affiliation aside, if you post
generally negative and unprofessional things, your corporate job prospects will be significantly lower.
They are watching!
So think before you post
Don't post things that you would not want your grandma to see
"some employers discriminated against Muslim applicants (via their social media info)...Christian applicants got callbacks 17% of the time, compared with about 2% for Muslims"
And try to look at the bigger picture!
