Think before you post

This simple picture says it all about how we should use social media. If we all followed this advice we wouldn't get so many scandal headlines about the supposed dangers of socialising online. It's so easy to blame the medium (mostly Facebook of course) rather than the users' lack of respect or good judgement.

If you have hundreds of friends on Facebook it might be a good idea to divide them into different categories (best friends, work, old school, relatives etc) and choose which groups should be able to see each comment you make (see instructions on how to do this at 10 privacy settings every Facebook user should know). Then you can post those party photos but only to those who need to see them. Just try to remember the questions below and if in doubt don't post it!
