On the Internet, you create an image of yourself through the information you share in blogs comments, tweets, snapshots, videos, and links. Others add their own opinions (good or bad), which contribute to your reputation. It is important that you know that once you post or upload an image or video it is out there for everyone to see.
Here are some top tips to protect your online reputation:
1. Check security
Check the security of all your social media sites. Make sure that only your friends can see their posts / wall / photos / videos.
2. Think Before You Post
Think before you post, whether you write something that offends somebody or write something private about yourself or even worse post an inappropriate image that information is stuck online potentially forever.
Check whether your profiles on social network sites are appropriate, are the profile pictures professional? Is the information on those sites correct? Always check whether you have not given any personal information to anyone (telephone numbers, address etc)
