Once you post something online, it is there for everyone to see and share. What information are you sharing online? When surfing the web or visiting social networking sites such as Facebook or MySpace, it is important to be aware of the information that you post online. Some information can reveal a lot about who you are, where you live and how to find or contact you. Be careful when visiting websites that request this type of information and think about whether you feel comfortable sharing this information online.


As this article points out, you should also be aware that what you post online could be viewed by potential employers or even college recruiters. Consider that posting something inappropriate could ruin your chances of getting into the college or university of your choice.
