Be careful with social networking sites, especially at work

While this tip is aimed at end users who lack a security admin’s sophistication regarding network security issues, it’s worth reading even for the most seasoned security specialist. Why? Because many of us in the security industry forget that the Internet is a public place, and everything you put on the Internet, especially on social networking sites, can come back to haunt you some day.

My best advice for you is to use social networking sites as a way to promote yourself with good personal “image” management. Don’t use them for “socializing”; use them to promote yourself and your career. In that way, you’re less likely to say something stupid that will get you into hot water some day in the future.
