Communications dangers in 2010, a few resolutions for the new year
1) Getting to know someone: Everything from dating to social media sites present dangers to the participants. Recently we have seen children commit suicide for what was said to them on social media sites and have seen too many episodes of Dateline to know that there are real dangers.
2) Letting someone find out about you: Sure, you thought that only your friends would see that picture of you drunk and get a laugh. But when the hiring partner of your future firm does not get a laugh of your picture with the lampshade posted world-wide, you will need to re-evaluate what you let others know about your personal life. Remember that the hiring partner has a personal life too, but they don’t put pictures available worldwide on the Internet….
3) Not guarding your numbers: Keep your SSN, bank numbers and other important numbers away from the bad folks.
