11 Internet Behaviors to Watch out for ...


When you hear the term, “Internet behaviors”, what do you think of? A lot of us see the Internet as a place where we can be ourselves without consequence, and for the most part this is true. Stuff like how you speak, what you look like or if you have a disability doesn't matter online the way it might in “real life”. For people with anxiety like my husband's, the Internet can be a lifesaver. However, that doesn't mean there aren't Internet behaviors to watch out for. Some of these things seem obvious, but you'd be surprised at how easily people fall into these traps.

1. Don't Post Anything You Wouldn't Want Your Parents/managers/future Employers to See

This is one of the most-important but most-forgotten Internet behaviors to avoid. The pictures of your drunken exploits at your bachelorette party might be funny now, but will they be in ten years? Contrary to popular belief, a lot of employers don't differentiate between a person's work life and their social life. Some will give you the benefit of the doubt, but you can't bank on that. Also, do you really want your mother-in-law to see how many beads you got at Mardi Gras? If she doesn't already know how you got those beads, she'll find out soon enough. Don't post anything you wouldn't want someone to think represents you as a person or employee.
