All About You

People want to know more about you – where you work, what type of person you are, your personality traits, and about your history – before they either decide to give you another date, or a job post that you’ve been craving for all those years.
And if something negative appears about you on the Internet, you may not be perceived the same as what you appear on the outside world. For example, one of your close friends could have posted abusive status on their Facebook profile and tagged you in their post, which could show up on the screen of your boss’s laptop.
