Today’s session on digital identity confirmed some of my assumptions about the disadvantages fo social networking. For example:
– source of identity theft
– makes it easy for people to poke their nose in your affairs, when you don’t want them to.
– can damage your reputation
– is a time waster
I don’t subscribe or use any social media at all. The equation for me is that the costs outweigh any benefits. If I was to use any social media I may do once I re-enter the workforce it would be linked in. In that case I believe the benefits could be worthwhile. It would be for use to my caeer to network with others who can help me carry out my job. It would probably be something that my employers would encourage as it assist my professional development and productivity.
