My Public Service Reminder

Remember to Exercise Caution.

 

There are also many new Twitter add-ons and applications coming out daily, I’m sure you have seen them tweeted (localtweeps.com, wefollow.com, bigtweet.com, hootsuite.com, tweetdeck.com, nearbytweets.com, socialtoo.com, etc.) and they do get around the Twitter-world rather quickly.  This is also the case for Facebook.  Everyone making a buck on the new hot networking site… and there is nothing wrong with any of this.

 

What maybe most of concern is now how easy it is becoming for you to be found.  It is almost inviting anyone and everyone into your life and we don’t even give it a second thought.  Should we be concerned with this?  I think there should always be caution exercised on social networking sites as who knows what or who is out there.  These sites are inviting you to find people close to you, and everyone flocks to them so that they might add followers and spread their connections around.

 

I’m not opposed to any of this, I am on these sites as well.  What I do find odd is how readily people will follow others actions without really knowing more about a particular application or site.  Do you really want your information out there everywhere on a million sites?  Do you remember what you have put out already?

 

All I am saying is to think before you act.  Don’t follow everyone else, build your brand the smart way.  You are always in control and that is power you shouldn’t take lightly.
