Warning, warning, warning!

Last night I attended a Tweetup hosted by John Garvey of Garvey Communications, www.askmydog.com in Springfield. It was nice to see so many there and so many business friends who contributed so much, and so many experts.   The Tweetup was about Facebook administration and was actually very well attended with wonderful presenters.

Towards the end, there was a comment/question about how the colleges in the room are handling/warning their students about what they post to Facebook; things that could affect their future when applying for jobs upon graduation, etc. 

Well I thought it was time to talk about an experience I had and commented it is not only college students that are transparent on Facebook, but all of us on everything including Twitter as well.  I experienced this last fall with a local business person who actually called me to make an appointment, and then tweeted in a non-complimentary way about this appointment.   Within a day I came across this tweet and found this ‘insult’.  So, to the question about college students and what they have to be careful with; to those in business  and those with ‘supposed’ expertise in business and social media, warning, warning, warning!!!!
