I did not expect for Librotraficante to see my "dismay" post about the lack of events in El Paso, but they did .... and they shared it on Facebook. The post was made on a whim! I was curious why the "dismay" post was receiving so much traffic, checked on Facebook, and found my answer. Apparently if you Google "Librotraficante El Paso" my two blogs are ranked in the top ten hits -- at least this was the case on Sunday. Ladies, I'm not tooting my own horn, but it is a reminder of how you cannot control who sees your internet activity. The last person you expect, like an employer or a potential networking contact, may see that one post, Facebook status, tweet, or photo that you did not expect anyone to see. Even if your post is completely harmless, it's not safe. This was the case for a group of high school students whose Facebook photos were uploaded to a porn site without their consent. 


Friendly reminders:

- What you post online will stay on the internet, forever. 
- Underage drinking pics will come back and haunt you, not to mention it's illegal.
- Don't overshare! Keep those TMI posts to yourself.

Yes, I just turned this into an educational lesson. Deal with it.
