Practice Safe Social Networking

Blogs and social networking can be fun to use, and they can be helpful in staying in touch with friends or forging professional relationships. But posting personal information on your webpage can lead to unwanted attention. The lack of physical interaction provides a false sense of anonymity and security. It is easy to forget that more than just your friends and family can gain access to your site and view your information. When you post personal information in a social network site (such as Facebook or Twitter), you significantly increase the odds of people outside of your intended audience learning about you. Posting inappropriate material can lead to problems ranging from earning strikes against you from a potential employer to much more serious encounters with predators and criminals.
