Re: Public social posts
@Laurianne even with view settings. I assume that anything I post may be read by anyone. I bear in mind the same thing someone told me about committing anything to writing -- even an email : "Don't put in anything that you wouldn't want on the front page of the New York Times."

Re: So the lesson is...
Yep, pretty much. A lot of people think of the Internet as a platform for self-expression, and it can be-- but it's getting hard to escape the reality that it's also an endless job interview, where every post or tweet (or at the very least, every one made outside a confined network) has to be viewed almost as a potential audition for someone else's approval.

Public social posts
I still can't believe how many people leave their FB posts wide open to the public. Just asking for trouble. What do you think of this aggregation technique, readers?

Social is a Business Imperative
Social is a Business Imperative
The use of social media for a host of business purposes is rising. Indeed, social is quickly moving from cutting edge to business basic. Organizations that have so far ignored social - either because they thought it was a passing fad or just didnít have the resources to properly evaluate potential use cases and products - must start giving it serious consideration.
