A CBS news clip has been circulating about the demise of an employee who took some time off and was seen in a Facebook photo at a Halloween party while playing hooky.
This is a warning for all social media users, whether it be Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat. In today’s day and age, everyone knows how to use the internet, which means employers, high school teachers, administrators, and—YES–college admission professionals are checking you out on the net. We strongly advise college applicants and their parents to be sure there are no detracting publications on these very accessible public channels.
It’s always wise to think before you post. In fact, the best thing may be to post nothing at all!
