Sense and Social Media

November 25, 2015

 

Social media is a part of life now don’t you agree? There was a time when you would sit at the breakfast table, servants milling around in a subservient #fashion and one would approach with a letter for you. You would gasp, your family would look up from their tea in shock and you would stand abruptly, curtly asking to be excused.

 

How times change. Still, despite everyone knowing everything about everyone nowadays there still seems to be some codes of conduct that a few surfers are missing. #Social media platforms are plentiful but not necessarily alike. It dawned on me when I first completed my #Linkedin profile a few months ago that some people considered this site just another form of #Facebook, as indicated by their choice of photos, their colourfully worded comments and propensity for arguing.

 

Guys; Linkedin is a way to flaunt your #professional integrity and perhaps even progress your #career. It is not the site where you, on the one day apply to be a research assistant and on the next update your profile #picture to the one of you on your latest night out (complete with devil horns and purple lipstick). I know society is relaxed, but not to the extent where future #employers will find your weekend antics endearing. Sorry.
