  • At the end of this presentation I am going to ask you to share one thing you will take away from this. Begin thinking about that as we go through this.
  • How do you express yourself when you use social media?
  • The demographics of the most popular sites are rapidly changing. Today, more than ever, older internet users are flocking to social sites to join in the conversation. In fact the most significant growth among these sites in the last few years has been among adults 50 years and older
  • Job seekers are cautioned to be mindful of the information they post online and how they communicate directly with employers. Forty-five Percent of Employers Use Social Networking Sites to Research Job Candidates, CareerBuilder Survey FindsThirty-five percent of employers reported they have found content on social networking sites that caused them not to hire the candidate. Fourteen percent of employers have disregarded a candidate because the candidate sent a message using an emoticon such as a smiley face while 16 percent dismissed a candidate for using text language such as GR8 (great) in an e-mail or job application.

  • Jenny got fired from her job for posting negative comments about her job. People are still posting negative comments about their company or boss on social networking sites. You can get reprimanded or fired because of it. Why would you bite the hand that feeds you? Say only good things about your job on social media. Don’t forget if your boss is your friend.www.lamebook.com
  • Recently two Domino’s employees lost their jobs after posting a video of them doing unmentionable things to a pizza.NYTimes: Two Domino’s employees made a video in the restaurant’s kitchen. In the video, one provides narration while the other performs gross violations of health-code standards. Within days:The video had been viewed more than a million times on YouTube.References to it were in five of the 12 results on the first page of Google search for “Domino’s.” Discussions about it had contaminated Twitter.The perception of Domino’s quality among consumers went from positive to negative, according to online surveys at YouGov.
  • Using profanity, getting into heated discussions on hot button issues or excessive immature behavior are common mistakes people make.
  • I don’t need to read what you ate for dinner. Do I care? Be helpful to people so they want to hear what you have to say.
  • NY TIMES If you plan to log into your Facebook account and announce to the world that you’re heading to the beach for the weekend, you might want to append the status update with a warning that your home is under 24-hour surveillance, you have a 140-pound Rottweiler who hasn’t eaten in a week and that you own a really good alarm system.If you don’t, you personal belongings could be fodder for some tech-savvy burglars. According to New Hampshire’s WMUR Channel 9 News, three local men, Mario Rojas, Leonardo Barroso and Victor Rodriguez, have burglarized more than 18 homes in the Nashua area of New Hampshire simply by checking status updates on Facebook and then pillaging the houses of victims who announced on the social network that they were not home.

  • Voters Recall Oregon Mayor Who Posed on Fire Truck in Underwear
    ARLINGTON, Ore.  —  The mayor of an Oregon town who once stripped to her underwear and posed on a fire truck has been stripped of her office.
    Voters in Arlington, population about 500, voted narrowly on Monday night to recall Carmen Kontur-Gronquist.
    The tally was 142-139. City officials said the recall is effective Tuesday.
    Kontur-Gronquist said the pictures of her in black bra and panties were taken for use in a contest about fitness, but a relative posted them on MySpace in hopes it would improve the social life of the single mother.
    They predated her election, but she said she saw no reason to take them off the popular Web site once elected three years ago. Later, she closed access to them.
    Opponents said it wasn't fitting for the mayor to be so depicted. They said they also disagreed with her on issues about water and the local golf course.
