4 Tips to Protecting Your Kids Future from their own Impulsiveness Mistakes Online, by Branding Expert, Libby Gill

  1. No foul language on Facebook – or anywhere else online!
  2. Nothing even remotely sexual – what seems like a joke in the moment can be super offensive to even a part-time employer – and believe me, they’re checking everyone out online – your Facebook page or 2nd Life identity is NOT secret enough.
  3. Ditto the above even OFFLINE if there’s a camera around (and when isn’t there?).  Your kids may be saints online, but even a few indiscriminate photos uploaded by friends can be brand breakers.
  4. Watch the comments on OTHER people’s blogs – even the New York Times!  Online is a great place to vent / share our opinions – but truly, if negative, they are better off shared over a cuppa java with friends.  Alienating the sub-group that you ranted against can truly come back to bite you later on in life.
