So there’s some concern about the manner in which data is near-permanent. This not-so-apparent feature of our online activities on SN sites can leave reputations in tatters. The fear being pedaled around the popular media circles is that future employers will use SNS’s as a way to can a person’s budding career.
My earlier post today suggests that this fear is not one shared by many in the SN scene, with few being concerned about long-term problems caused by less than well thought out posts to profiles.
That however hasn’t stopped ReputationDefender who, for a fee, will apparently clean up the trail of destruction caused by pissy blogging and office party posts. Me thinks there’s a chance they’ll make some money tapping into the paranoia of a few.
Best of luck to them.
