LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Learn to keep it private

Jessica Cassel

There have been two articles in The Roundup lately regarding the concern that potential employers and prospective colleges are judging people by their Facebook or MySpace profiles.

These are valuable facts to consider and there are valid arguments for or against the practice.

Although, I could not help but notice a glaring omission in the articles.

Each of these social-networking sites have a function where with the click of a button you are able to make your personal profile private.

No one would be able to access any information, with the exception of one default photograph and perhaps the city that you live in. It is completely within our power to portray who we are, however we want, and to make sure that only our “friends” are privy to it.

If you are willing to forfeit the possibility that a stranger is going to come along, view your page, find you magnificent, and make you a huge star… then you may just get that great job you’ve been so excited about!
