Love Your Online Reputation
As we increasingly live out our lives online, we’re finding that not only are there major downsides to all of that social media over-sharing—but we may have little control over the way we appear on the internet. The rise of the internet has given birth to a lot of good things … and a lot of things that are not so good. (Forbes)
Your online reputation can be seen in a number of ways. Whether you’re looking for a job, selling a product, or trying to score a date with that girl/guy you always bump into on your tea break, someone is going to turn to a search engine to learn more about you.
Your brand in life is very important because we live by our reputation. Your peers, parents, teachers, acquaintances, employer and prospective employers can all ‘judge’ or give an opinion about you based on the online reputation you have created of yourself.
Your personal brand is your reputation. You can’t buy it, you can’t sell it. However, you can damage it by your online activity.
