How can a Facebook account help you?
93% of hiring managers review a candidate’s social profile before making a hiring decision
31% of college admission officers visit applicants’ Facebook and other social media accounts. Letting them find your account early will keep them from stumbling upon other sources.
It’s better to be found because:
Colleges will think you’re hiding.
You can use your Facebook account in a positive way to manage what others will find out about you.
It keeps you from being mistaken for someone else with the same name (especially if their image is not very polite).
Why should you care?
College admissions officers & employers search for applicants most of the time
You might accidentally be sharing a lot of personal information
Photos and posts can help or hurt your image
You can behave fine online, but your friends can still tag you in party photos
What can you do?
Sit down with your friends and say “let’s look through my Facebook page.” Ask them questions as they walk you through your photos.
Open your account page in an incognito/private browsing window and see how much the available information you are revealing.
Discuss which photos and posts would be better to delete and which to keep.
Share more volunteer photos to flood the internet with positive content
Keep each post “Light, Bright and Polite.”
