Yesterday my brother contacted me through facebook and brought up a very good point. His wife mentioned something to him about a "like" he left on another person's status that had an inappropriate word in it. The point was, that you have to be very careful at what you put your mark on as a future business person.  Even though people don't care now, they will in the future. When you do become established, your peers, competitors and just individuals in general will search for anything to bring you down, and/or make news. What you post on the internet stays there forever.

 Another thing that crossed my mind what the dilution of your message. Recently I became a member of twitter, and in a few days I developed a pretty good following. However, I began to feel like I was using it more like a chat forum than anything else. One of the people I follow is Drake (hip-hop artist) and he barely ever posts. However, this one particular night he wrote that he was going to post 3 things that night. Now these 3 things were not anything impressive at all, but the fact that he never does it made the anticipation for it great. It goes back to simple supply vs. demand.  

Make your words worth it, and people will cherish what you write. If you want to separate your business side from your personal side, do what i did and simply have multiple accounts  - I am Business

Definitely valid points bro. With the way social media is expanding, finding information is much easier. Employers often look to social sites as a little window into their prospects.
