Using social media wisely

Social media is a fantastic tool for networking, communications, awareness raising and marketing. We use it widely and we promote it to all of our clients and students. However, even social media has a risky side, with fake profiles sometimes being used to gather personal data and business information. Here are some top tips for safe social media use:

  1. Be careful who you friend - don’t automatically trust friend requests from strangers
  2. Be careful what you post - remember that almost anything you post can be re-posted
  3. Avoid ideology unless you plan to be active in the public domain
  4. Manage your profile - only include the things you really want others to know
  5. Consider your security settings thoughtfully - what controls will you put in place?
  6. Think before posting images - do you want your relatives or employer to see them?
  7. Think before tagging others - do they want to be tagged online?
  8. Don’t trust every link you see - some can take you to infected sites
