Social Media – Colleges Do Look

Admissions officers do look at your social media. Follow these tips to keep yourself safe and to protect your image.

Keep it Clean

Potential colleges and employers may look at your social media sites. Before you post something ask yourself if what you’re about to post hurt your future opportunities? If the answer is yes or maybe then don’t post it! Monitor what you’re tagged in. If you don’t like something, untag yourself or ask for the photo or information to be removed.

Check Privacy Settings

Social media sites sometimes change their settings. Check your settings and set them to protect yourself from spammers and other strangers who may look at your information. Also, don’t ‘friend’ strangers.
