    Very timely and insightful article, Thank you. With the advancements in digital technology, the era of social media is at its peak. It is now becoming part of our lives. Whether you like it or not, you will be branded as outdated or old-fashioned if you are not inclined to it. Which begs a big question, should we work on a good skill development planner for social media use? It is true that Social media is a great way to promote your brand, expand your reach, and increase followers who will hopefully become customers. However, it can also create trouble when not used correctly. One mistake on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google+, and your brand is suddenly dealing with a serious reputation issue. Unless you’ve been living under a rock in 2009, you know that social networking Web sites are the latest and greatest way to interact with other users on the Internet. But just like in real life, there’s such a thing as sharing too much information (TMI). It’s easy to get caught up in the social aspects of sites like Facebook, but what you choose to share is there for all to see if you don’t limit who can view your information. Sharing personal information with strangers can be dangerous business, and there are some things you should definitely put on your “do not share” list. Be careful what you share on social media because you never know when something could come back and ruin your life. Even the most innocent and well-intentioned posts could be used against you in ways you’ve never thought possible.

    Thank you for posting this. Why would someone post his/her password online when we have hackers sniffing around the internet to get personal information to use to commit online crime or fraud. In my opinion, someone’s daily activities, career aspirations, innovation, lifestyle, location, emotional pains, future aspirations, current events, disappointments and any other information that will give room for others to take advantage of you or your loved ones should not be posted online. I’m not against posting your activities online but watch what you post. Someone may be around sniffing around to use that information you posted online about you or your loved ones. Online hackers or thieves may even go as far as impersonating you to get what they want. So beware!

    It’s common to find people whose facebook is an opened book about their lives, this is not a big problem when we think about it at first time, but it´s deeper than we can expect. The cyberbullying has originated because of the globalization of social networks. Everyday thousand of people post all about their lives on social networks, and everyday thousand of criminals play with the “private” information and hence with the people’s lives. These tips seem to be straighforward words to remember, but we can still find people (young ones mostly) who fall into this kind of crimes, this has affected their lives in many aspects (emotional, social, even physic). This matter requires to be studied because of the amount of problem that is generating. We need to protect our kids, we need to know what kind of pages are the best for their learning process and when is the suitable moment for using social networks (and how to use them). Good article!

    The internet comes with its load of fun activities like games and social media platforms like Instagram ,Facebook among others. In these social media platforms people express themselves , socialize and learn so much . But with lack of digital empowerment many people expose themselves to risks as they do not know what they are not supposed not to share on social networks . For example your daily habits exposure makes it easy for thieves as they know when you are in and out of the house and could plan a robbery attack without much hustle and come out clean . To others social network may be a reliever to jobs pressure but what if your boss came across it and it entails some of his most annoying habits that make u angry ? What you post on social media platforms could bring a heel of a lifetime to you so take precaution.
