I’m not into social media, however, billions of others are into it. Perhaps, even addicted to it. We know now these days when applying for a job, employers will go over the things you have “out there” in the social media world. People love to post the things going on in their lives.
Unfortunately, it can sometimes be negative. If you have defaulted on say a credit card and are posting pics of how wonderful your life is through picture and video logs of you traveling the globe then that could be problematic. If you can’t pay your bills how then are you able to have such a “glam” life?
Debt collectors are now using social media to hunt you down and worse will embarrass you by reaching out to people in your network to get to you. A lady in Florida sued one such debt collector and her case is pending.
Al Sharpton’s daughter sued the city of NY for 5 million because she allegedly hurt her ankle when she tripped on some pavement in Soho, which resulted in “permanent pain and mental anguish.” The problem is, she posted pics on her Instagram account of her hiking a mountain somewhere shortly after the incident.
So much for permanent pain…
Oops, should have thought more about posting that pic. Once you click send, it’s over. You can’t take it back.
