The internet makes it nearly impossible to keep your personal and professional life separate these days. I’m going to cut to the chase. What you post and how you conduct yourself on social media can absolutely destroy you, your job, or your career, so let’s make sure it doesn’t.
Act Like You Are On Display
When posting, act like you are on display. Act like everything you say and do is completely public, for the entire world to see. If you conduct yourself like this, it definitely helps put things into perspective.
Remember, even something you think you’re sharing in private can easily be shared with people outside of who you intend to share it with.
Keep It Kind
If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say it. Keep it kind on social media, and if you can’t, you just shouldn’t even be on there.
Keep It Classy
There might be a time and place for profanity, but it’s not online. Keep what you post classy, and don’t use any curse words.
Keep It Educated
Spelling counts, and it can greatly affect someone’s view of you if your social media posts are riddled with basic grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. Keep it educated a proofread your posts before you set them live.
Do Not Touch These Topics With A Ten Foot Pole
Do not, under any circumstances, touch the following topics with a ten foot pole out there in the social media universe. If it has to do with religion, race, or politics, keep you opinion out of it.
Social media is just not the place to air how you feel, especially since someone could see what you share and it could get back to your employer, or your clients, with detrimental consequences.
Don’t Engage Anyone Looking To Stir The Pot
A lot of people treat social media like their diaries, and a lot of people take this opportunity to stir the pot and rile others up. Just don’t engage or reward anyone looking to cause a scene with a reply. Silence is golden.
