There’s You, and There’s Social Media You

You are a different person in real life from your social media. Maybe your name on the Internet is that different that your actually name, perhaps a pun on words in your name? Companies will not take you seriously if you do not keep your social media game in check.

Our social media game is just as important as our interview skills these days. Its something creative professionals take into account.

Facebook Knows More Than You Think

Facebook knows more that we think. Ever since we made our accounts, Facebook has accounted for every click, like, share, post, and comment. It is all housed somewhere with everyone else from the world. 

Facebook didn’t make us give all of our information but that’s just the price we pay for having a social life.
