Learn to Protect Your Reputation: Lesson 1

The Internet Doesn’t Forget

  • On the Internet, delete doesn’t really mean delete. It is amazing what can be retrieved even after delete is done.
  • And just because the crowd in the virtual world seems a place you can disappear in, it does not mean that embarrassing or racy pictures, mean and nasty posts, or online scams will disappear forever into the crowd.
  • Watch what you post about yourself or others — or that you let others post about you — because it will be around for a long time even if you think it is gone.
  • It is more and more common for potential employers to check you out on line as part of the hiring process for a job.
    • Don’t let your immature Internet behavior haunt you into your more mature adulthood.
