Social media risks

The internet and social media have brought incredible advances in information sharing and communications. However, an online or social media posting can also cause long term damage to personal and business reputations and brands. Unfortunately, at the click of a button, reputations can be ruined, private information can be misused, and brands can be undermined.

Within an instant a harmful message can ‘go viral’ and a private image can be shared publicly on the internet. Employers can also be responsible in law for their employee’s social media misuse.
