You Are What You ‘Tweet’

Importance of protecting your online reputation

Your Online Reputation is not just for business, adults or third level students. Your Online Reputation is YOU!

Google has an ever-lasting memory and your online reputation will stick like mud.

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.

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.

How would you best describe your online reputation? Strong? Poor? Worrying? Funny? Have you ever considered how your online reputation may look from somebody else’s eyes?

So think before you post, share, tweet etc. etc. etc.



Young Minds Online provides tasks for TY Students to carry out throughout the course so they can learn more about their online reputation and how to protect it.
