Are You Worried About Your Online Reputation?

Whether you agree with it or not or even if it’s legal or not, more and more employers are demanding access to your facebook account. No, they don’t just want to be able to see your profile, they actually want your password!

It isn’t enough that you can already find out almost everything about anyone online nowadays just through a basic search online, for employers to demand passwords to your accounts, I think is going a little too far. Next thing you know, they will want to riffle through your home before they hire you. But, that is just my opinion. I would pass over any job that would require that of me.

The reality is, most employers, schools and other institutions are relying on social media and your online persona to make judgements about you. So much so that some people are either staying offline (almost impossible) or creating aliases. I see so many aliases among my facebook friends now that it’s almost annoying.

Aside from doing it yourself, some people who are overly concerned about their credibility are turning to professionals for their online reputation management. These companies charge a fee to provide you with a ‘positive online presence’. They will help you build a custom profile, monitor your online reputation and remove any negative content that shows up, and protect information that you would like to keep private.

Are you at the point yet that you think paying for this service is worth it?
