It’s never a good idea to alienate people or intentionally ruin one’s reputation, whether in your personal or professional life – offline or online. With 802 million daily active users and 602 million mobile daily active users on average in March 2014, there is no doubt in my mind that Facebook is a very popular social media site for connecting with friends, joining Groups in a more informal ambiance than LinkedIn.
Facebook is also a great place to network and used with adept, a great social networking tool as well. What this also means is that one has to take reputation management into consideration while engaging on Facebook and ensure that we don’t alienate people with wrong speech or action.
There is something else that many professionals may not be aware of but social media recruiting is in trend. I read sometime back that in 2010 approximately 30% of employers were using Facebook to screen potential employees. In a more recent survey by CareerBuilder, 51% of employers rejected candidates based on their findings at their social media accounts compared to 34% in 2012.
Quite clearly if you are in the job market looking for employment, know that your social media activity can be an important factor in landing a coveted job position.
Here’s my take on 8 ways one can actually create the wrong impression while engaging on Facebook. Enjoy!
