Social Networkers Beware

According to today's Columbus Dispatch social networking sites are becoming more than just virtual hangouts. Nowadays Facebook, MySpace, even blogs are being used against people.

Prosecutors are using web profiles against suspects in court cases, potential employers are searching sites as an additional reference to check out job applicants, and in some cases, employees have been dooced regardless of whether the company has clear-cut social networking policies or not.

Bottom line, watch what you post on-line. Once it's out there it's up for grabs for anyone to see and use however they please.
