Think Before You Post!

Social media has already made such a huge impact on how we interact with one another, but does it need to impact our job? Turns out many companies are keeping close tabs on your posts, tweets, grams, snaps, etc. to make sure you’re always in line with “company policy.” Not a big deal if you have nothing to hide, right?
