Social media redux

I'm certain that by now, everyone knows about Congressman Anthony Weiner, his social media behavior, and yesterday's press conference. I'm not going to discuss Weiner's immoral and, dare I say it, despicable behavior in his online actions and the ensuing attempt at a coverup. What I do want to mention is that this serves to reiterate one of the important points I mentioned in yesterday's blog post: that anything you say or post is there forever. If you would not want something on the front page of your local tabloid, don't post it anywhere on the Internet. Of course, if you always attempt to behave appropriately, chances are you won't get into such a mess to begin with, but as we say in the business - that is out of scope for this discussion.
