Many professionals have learned that the Internet has a long memory. If you have heard that term before, it implies that what is said on blogs, comments or social networks is indexed (cached) by search engines such as Google and Bing. Comments, responses and seemingly innocuous statements can return to haunt even the most professional digital user.
Most organizations embrace the value of sharing on social networks when it comes to events, activities and positive reflections or industry insights. Following or engaging with colleagues on social networks such as LinkedIn is not only common, but necessary for business professionals to make valuable business to business connections. And sometimes for business leaders, that also means connecting with members of your internal team or employees and subordinates.
