Here’s another reason to be cautious about what you put online

Jan 16, 2022

Posted On: There are several reasons to be cautious when sharing anything online, but a recent analysis recommends that greater consideration should be given to the possible effect on employment. As per Kaspersky Lab study, one-third of job applicants believe social media postings have hurt their career chances, a ratio that climbs to 47 percent among younger persons searching for entry-level work. According to the poll, more than a third (38%) feel that if a possible employer had access to their social media postings, the probability of obtaining a job offer would decrease, and 40% had previously looked up a new colleague on social media. As social media platforms initially emerged in the mid-2000s, the novelty element blinded virtually all of us to the hazards these services might pose in terms of reputation, addiction, and data privacy. Many people have become more cautious about the social media content they interact with (particularly personality quizzes and the like) for privacy reasons since the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and awareness about the effects of screen time has encouraged some to establish healthier relationships with their devices. However, the same level of prudence does not always apply to the material that individuals choose to put online. According to the survey, many individuals eventually come to regret the content they share on computer platforms, with 45 percent of respondents regretting using social media as much as they did when they were younger. However, 42 percent of respondents think their social media pages do not reflect their true selves, despite the fact that they have become the most easily accessible resource for recruiters trying to learn more about a possible new job. On the other hand, social media networks such as LinkedIn have proved to be an excellent resource for job seekers throughout the years. According to Kaspersky, 73% of millennials obtained their previous job via a social networking outlet. The issue then arises, “How can we get the advantages of social media without exposing ourselves to the risks?” According to Tony Neate, CEO of the guidance website Get Safe Online, individuals might profit greatly from making a concentrated effort to stop before posting. “One of the revolutions of the internet era has been and continues to be social networking.” When used responsibly, it is a wonderful way to stay in contact with friends and family, share information and advertisements, and find new job,” said Tony Neate, CEO of advice site Get Safe Online. “Our advice is simple. Enjoy the benefits of social media, but periodically take a step back and remind yourself why it’s important to think before you post. Use this time to edit and even delete recent posts that might position you detrimentally, minimising the risk of current and future employers seeing you in a negative light.”
