It’s always surprising and amazing to see how people use Twitter, Facebook, blogs and other social media tools to talk publicly about things that should be private.
Case in point is someone who used Twitter to talk about getting a job offer at Cisco, having to weigh a “fatty paycheck” versus the commute to San Jose. (Hat tip to I‘m Actually Not a Geek)
What was that person thinking when they did that update? At a time when everything is quickly searchable, and when companies are increasingly monitoring social media, talking about a job offer on Twitter is just stupid.
That said, there’s a growing number of people who live very public lives, documenting everything to do on public forums even though most of it is just noise that no one else is interesting in seeing.
In many respects, we’ve become public exhibitionists who are willing to expose ourselves wherever and whenever.
