You’ve Heard it Once, You’ve Heard it One Hundred Times

Like the first sentence in this article says, being told to “clean up” your Facebook profile isn’t necessarily earth-shattering advice. Yet, so often I see a picture on someone’s profile that makes me stop and think, “Why in the world have they not de-tagged that?” Being poorly judged by future employers or clients is a common consequence of questionable photos on your profile; however, an even bigger issue may lie in what your profile tells police. The above article explains how Facebook landed a few people, even one lawyer, in some serious trouble with the law. Not everyone is lacking the common sense of some of these folks, but  the bottom line is - be discerning, be smart and do something with the advice I know you have been given.
