Do you realize that people have lost their jobs from what they posted on Facebook?

Discretion, and maturity, are not abstract concepts. The first is defined as the quality of behaving or speaking in such a way as to avoid causing offense or revealing private information.  The second is the state, fact, of being mature.  Somehow folks have forgotten that their Facebook post does not belong to them.  Whatever you post online has a shelf life like uranium.  And can be as poisonous to your future as exposure to radioactive material.

Confidence is silent, insecurities are loud.

Have people forgotten that they have added co-workers, peers and managers to their “friends-list” so that they can feel good about the number of people in their circle of influence? Have they forgotten that post that are rude, racist, hurtful, or expressions that are insulting to another race can and will be remembered by the same people they have on their list? You may want to unfriend some people to save your future. The word is out. You are an ass.

The recent election of Donald Trump has been compared to a number of things in social media. Some think that it is funny but most adults do not.

Don’t let anyone’s’ hate, ignorance, drama, or negativity stop you from being the best person you can be.

 

Pass this tip on to a friend who may have forgotten that we are all connected by the internet.
