If it’s online, it’s on you!

Social media has become an enjoyable feature of our day to day lives. Even if you yourself don’t blog, share or tweet, I’m sure you have friends, colleagues and family members that do.

Did you know that social media is completely public?

If you only share something with your friends, there’s nothing to stop them sharing it with their friends – people you don’t know. And even if you delete a message or image, your content could have been shared with other people already. That’s why we describe social media as being public and permanent. Once it’s out there, consider it out there for good.

We need to be extremely careful about our online behaviour, whether we’re using a blog or wiki, a social networking site like Facebook, or a micro-blogging service such as Twitter. Click on the links below to learn how to protect yourself.
