The internet has thrown up a manner of all sorts of digital anxieties with the threat of hackers and underground organisations intent on acquiring your personal details for capital gain or even for the sheer thrill of knowing they could. For years, specialists have developed software to protect us from such threats, but the ever changing landscape of technology means there is always a new threat around the corner. There are ways we can protect ourselves on social media networks and it is our privacy and a small amount of common sense that will go towards making online communities a safe place for us to communicate. This infographic shows us just a few things we can do to improve how our information is made available.
Many workplaces now assign a member of staff to manage company social media accounts such as Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter. EAD Solicitors recommends that you check your workplaces company policy before making any changes to privacy or content. Your Human Resources department should be able to provide you with this information.
If you feel you have been unfairly mistreated by your employer in reference to social media then you should contact our Employment Law Solicitors on 0151 735 1000. Alternatively visit ASK EAD to ask an FREE employment law question.
