I thought of more with Facebook and Image. Again, you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t.
I tend not to post much personal stuff, mostly my writing and my off beat sense of humor. If you have a page, future and present employers can and may look at your Facebook page. I would advise a young person to be careful, but at my age, my attitude has become; “This is me, if you reject me because of this, you may have figured I would not fit the people there and you may have saved having to fire me later.
OK, so you decide NOT to have a Facebook page. Think several steps ahead though. If I were an employer, especially looking at a young person, I would wonder two things:
1. Are they anti-social?
2. What are they hiding?
Companies with company psychologists would have a field day with this.
