Why you need to think about your online reputation
3.2 billion people use the internet. Everyone is online now. That’s where we spend most of our time. Scrolling, uploading, downloading, streaming… these aspects of life have taken precedence and take up our daily life. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat are all funnels for us to broadcast ourselves online to a limitless audience. This is great for exposure, getting yourself out there and showing the world who you are. But the internet is still figuring itself out. It changes in the blink of an eye. The internet from 1995 compared with the internet of 2016 is a wholly different place. So you can see that we’re still figuring it out too. Who knows where it will be in 2026?
Why should I care?
A few basics to start
A few handy tips to start off your online reputation journey include:
- Tidy! If you see something online that you dislike or is inappropriate, try and get it removed.
- Get private. Most social media websites privacy settings have public as default. Simply update your preferences to hide anything you want to hide.
- Clean. Old pictures of a time gone by? Simply remove them or put them on private.
But I still need help!
