SOCIAL MEDIA

If you have Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, or Twitter be smart on what you put on there. Don't be putting stuff that could ruin your reputation, because when you put that pic of you or your friends out there you do not own it. The company owns it. Also, put your private settings on Facebook so everyone is not seeing what you post. This is also one of the ways people can steal your identity.
