Is Facebook Like A Relationship?

Posted by admin | Uncategorized | Wednesday 7 July 2010 1:24 pm

I read an article recently at one of the Chicago Tribune’s news blogs, about facebook and how to protect against online defamation. It would be enlightening to many people, I think. Judging by how I’ve seen many people use social networking sites, they need to read this.

Using Facebook is a little like being in a relationship. When things are going well (people are “liking” your status updates and commenting on your photos), you couldn’t be happier with it, but if, for whatever reason, you decide to part ways, you realize it knows way more about you than you wish it did.Once your information is out there, it’s out there.

Seventy percent of America’s hiring managers have rejected job candidates based on what they found when researching candidates’ social networking profiles, according to a Dec. 2009 Microsoft survey.

“Some job seekers are turning to Online Reputation Management (ORM) firms to help them improve their digital personas,” according to a press release from the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, a non-profit consumer information, privacy protection, and advocacy program.
