Guess what. You’re not invisible. Neither is your web presence.
If you think you’ve managed to hide yourself on the web from a boss, friend, mother, job interviewer, etc; you haven’t.
You're Being Watched
It does not take much to find a persons presence on social media sites, and you would be surprised how many people disregard this. Just looking at my own facebook friends, (see example here) I can see that most don’t take this point to heart. Updating your status that you are wasting your time at your current job may not be a good incentive for your boss to give you a promotion.
As an example of how easy it is to connect the dots, I will lay out this situation. Through this blog I received an email regarding a posting. I responded with my personal email address, not connected with this blog. Later in that afternoon I had a friend request on LinkedIn from the person I had emailed earlier. My blog is not posted there, my name has several duplicates and the emails aren’t associated, but still I was found. I was not surprised, but thought it was very interesting.
Stay transparent and remember you’re being watched.
