Remember that what you post on the Internet is PERMANENT! If you don't want people to find it when you apply to college, find a job, or run for office, DON'T POST IT!
Have you thought about
protecting your
online reputation?

Would you know what to do?
Protect Your Reputation
As social networking gets more popular - and as more colleges and businesses spend time actively researching students and employees (and protecting their own online reputations) - the greater the impact your online behavior will have in your real life.
Students can be and have been
or even

for their tweets!
There are dozens of stories of students being
for inappropriate Facebook posts.
A school in Indiana has set precedent,
a boy for violating their acceptable use policy in April 2012 with his offensive tweets.
... then you may have some
Also during April 2012, several students were
for their tweets.
A student was
in 2011 for posting derogatory statements about his teacher: http://mashable.com/2011/02/01/facebook-free-speech-high-school/
In April of 2012, three students were
for making threats against other students at their school: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/04/25/3-students-expelled-over-facebook-conversation-about-killing-classmates/
What should you do?
Use common sense! Think before you post, on your wall and on the walls of friends.

This includes responding to other people's posts. Would you say the same thing to that person's face? If the answer is no, you might want to keep that comment to yourself.
Ask friends to take down compromising photos, or not to tag you (be courteous to your friends, and think before adding photos of them, too)!
Try a service like Socioclean (www.socioclean.com) to clean up your Facebook or Twitter account.
Don't post the name or location of your school or workplace, or the names of teachers or bosses. These are
ways for schools, colleges and businesses to find your comments.
What do you think? Should schools or businesses be able to hold you accountable for what you post online?
What if your posts could be harmful to the reputation of the school or business?
What if the posts propose harm to other students or colleagues?
Check your privacy settings! Facebook in particular is famous for it's evolving privacy controls. Check on them often!
Look to see which apps you've allowed to access your social media accounts, and delete any that you no longer use (the more apps that you let access your account, the greater the chance that your information could be hacked).
Change your password regularly (especially if you use the same password for multiple accounts).
Do this every few months.
Use phrase searching, and add identifiers: "your name" Agnes Irwin; "your name" Chester County PA.
Log out of Facebook and look yourself up. What can other people see about you?
How do schools find out about these posts?
Most often, a concerned parent alerts the school.
How many of you/how many of your friends are friends with your parents online?
Create a positive social media profile.
(What do you think this means?)
"Young people have to realize that once they take a digital image, once it is uploaded, it essentially becomes public property and is virtually impossible to remove."
