Warn Clients of the Danger of Social Media

All right, all right -- the upside of social media VASTLY outweighs the negatives.

But every once in a while, I come across a story of a job searcher who forgot that the Internet is PUBLIC.

Here's a story of a job searcher who got burned by a tweet on Twitter.

Remind your clients that while Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Ning, Twitter, etc. are great ways to communicate with their networks, family, and friends -- that even things that they thought were private aren't 100% private ... so they need to "think twice; tweet once."
