Your online diary

Remember that what you post online is there forever, and is a testimony to your character, and your personality. Human Resource searches of your online profiles could also have an impact on a perspective employer. You could conceivably be passed over for a job or career opportunity, simply for posting an inappropriate comment, or event online. What may seem like an innocent online revelation of yourself, or how you described or handled an event or relationship, could likely follow you for your entire life. You are most certainly creating a public diary with every bit of personal, and social information you willingly, and innocently post online for public scrutiny. Do not fail to realize that you are literally under a cyber microscope. Avoid becoming your worst enemy for a simple but foolish posting that can never be acceptably retracted.
