Hello readers! Been a while since a last post and I apologise, although its only to affect me by not having fresh content regularly!
Anyway, this post I thought I’d talk about online presence, and what the world can actually see about you. This was a task we were given in DMMP, to identify the powers of social media and your personal profiles.
Basically, we searched ourselves on Google, and again on 123 People. For those that do not know, 123 People is a website that allows you to search for peoples names, and displays results on what social networks they are associated too.
I managed to come across two things; My Twitter account, but also a very very VERY stagnant MySpace page!
Only the other day I took it upon myself to (remember my password!), and delete the account. I had last updated the profile in early 2008, a 15 year old boy who was listening to MC’in and roaming the streets in tracksuits.
Imagine an employee was to search for my name using 123 People, in order to contact me or even for job opportunities, and stumbled across this MySpace page. Not only would it portray a bad image of myself as a youngster (having matured since, honestly!), but I probably would not recieve the messages, as it is not a format I use any longer!
Basically, my post was to let you know that having all of these accounts can sometimes be a pain, not only to track yourselves, but for others to track you! 🙂
