Today, I ran across a story about a guy who tweeted on Twitter about a job he just accepted and how he blatantly said that he was going to hate the job. I’ll be honest and say that I’m still learning about this whole social media thing like twitter and other sites. However, it would behoove people who use social media to use common sense to what is said on the internet!
Also, New Media Cincinnati just had a “meetup” last Saturday. I had to work the Girl Power Invitational, so I was unable to attend. However, one of the speakers, Kristen Beireis, talked about this very topic. Listen to the podcast on this blogpost! (Thank you Daniel at New Media Cincinnati!!)
