Colin McLaren and Eve Ash discuss the need to prevent “too much information” on social media. People should be more cautious about what information they share and what they say about their organization.
Lots of people enjoy regularly updating their social media. Too much information about their movements, habits and opinions exposes them to potential trouble, warns Colin McLaren. Less is more when it comes to Facebook etc – you don’t want stalkers or any angry employer sacking you. Protect yourself and change passwords regularly.
Key Learning Points
As people discover social media, and share devices, they get in the habit of:
Telling the world what they are doing
Giving too much away about themselves– less is more
Firing off opinions that might reflect adversely on their employer
