I completely agree with this article because one of my best friend’s family members recently got in a huge amount of trouble because of what she posted on her Twitter. She committed an act of slander upon a teacher and got in a large amount of legal trouble. I hate the fact that she was dumb enough to even think about doing something as stupid as that. However I find this funny because my best friend and I have told this person many times that she could get in a ton of trouble for putting those things on the internet. She would like to attend Michigan State University and we have warned her that big universities such as Michigan State look at the stuff that you put out on the internet. I completely agree with this article that employers are smart to look at your internet footprint.
The information presented in this article will benefit me now and in the future. This will benefit me because I know that people do not just tell you the\at you need to stop posting that on Facebook and stop tweeting that on Twitter. Someday someone important will see that and look down upon you because of your choices of what information you put out on the Internet for everyone to see. Some things you keep to yourself or share with a loved one through word of mouth not through a status update. Social media can be good but it can also be bad because most people do not know the statistics of how many employers really do base if you get a job or not on your social networking pages. However, if you’re Facebook, Twitter, and Linked-In, and all of your other social media outputs have nothing but good vibes and positive status updates you have nothing to worry about.
