Social Networks as Public Records Source
A boom in the World Wide Web, social networks (e.g. facebook, myspace, and friendster) has made communications easier especially with people who wish to contact distant relatives and long lost friends. Their features gives an exciting twist as group of friends grow more closely bonded not to mention grow in numbers. And in line with the search feature is another feature that social networking offer--showing a person's profile. With this said, it can be therefore said that social networks are public records too.
Searching for a person is more on the name and pictures first seen on the result page. A name has been repeated time and again that the only way to ensure that the person searched for is truly found, especially with people posting someone else's picture as their site's primary, is through looking at their profiles. It has been tested time and again that looking at a person's profile ensures that he or she is the person searched for. Between long time friends, checking on network lists of friends is another assurance that they have found a long lost acquaintance. But in terms of employment, these are useful tools as it serves as reference for background checks.
It used to be just charisma and talent. Presently, snagging that longed for dream job is about attitude. Considered as public records, the social networks serve as another definition to one's personality. The personalization of the layouts to the whole siteâ¬"from pictures to music to the written blogsâ¬"is a reflection of one's personality. This has been a useful psychological output especially the youth.
Taking into consideration that one's social networking page can be the make or break of any great opportunity that may come, details should be treated carefully. There is nothing wrong in incorporating fun in presenting information just as long as it doesn't overpower decency. Refraining from posting something disturbing is one rule in giving a good impression to the page's visitors. Â Â Â
Responsible handling of a social network page is a must. With the freedom to present individuality, taking those who'll view it into consideration will not only give them a good impact about the owner of the page but also friends and even something that can boost a person to success.
