First of all, is your instagram, facebook, vine, etc. set to private? If not, you will want to make it as private as possible. No, not everyone can find you easily but you will be able to better control who has access to your information. Do you really want everyone to know where you are on Friday night? Secondly, don't friend people you don't know well. I know--you want to have a million friends but remember if you must friend everyone, then some of these sites have levels so that those "friends" don't see everything. Again, it isn't safe to friend people you don't know so think carefully before clicking the accept button. Third, think before you post. Seriously, what you post now will follow you forever. Even if you delete a post or pic, it is always there and someone can find it.
This third point leads me to a discussion on your digital dossier. First, dossier is defined as a set of documents about a particular person. So a digital dossier is all of your digital documents that anyone can find with a simple google search or with a little digging. Watch this you tube video so you can see what I mean.
This video shows there is a lot to think about before you post a picture, tweet, vine video or instagram pic. Remember, I am here to help you so stop by and ask if you have a question. I want you to be a successful student and young adult so you need to be thinking carefully before you post!
