What goes on the Internet stays on the Internet

You uploaded a photo by accident – but you realized that it probably isn’t the best idea 2.5 seconds after you posted it and deleted it immediately. (Yes IU, we have not forgotten, even a year after your mistake) Chances are that you are not as safe as you think, especially if you have a large following on whatever SNS portal that you were on.

miss A’s Jia uploaded an Instagram video of her riding an airport cart – something that seems harmless enough, right? Wrong. She drew flak for “doing something dangerous”, and she later apologised for the video, promising to “be more careful” in the future.

With the advent of social media sites such as Twitter and Instagram, keeping your followers (or stalkers) up-to-date with your every movement has become easier – but that also means that you can get into trouble more easily as well.

What you can do to avoid getting in trouble (“You went there with her and not me?” “Is that alcohol I see? Aren’t you underage?”) is  to thoroughly vet your content before posting it, or even better, refraining from posting anything that you know is not 101% safe.
