Who are you? Get clear on the type of public image you want to show the world. What is your message, style and life journey you want the world to see? Always lean towards an image that is agreeable and does not offend your public’s personal beliefs. Yes, everyone on your social media page is considered someone like a friend but don’t consider for a minute that they won’t have an opinion about your posts. Worse some people get onto your social media page to see what kind of person you are for possible work potential. They review whether you look public ready which can determine what opportunities will come your way. You can still have fun, be yourself and unique but keep in mind that fans can be fickle so avoid pictures or comments that might offend. Be thoughtful with every post on the type of image you send out into the world!
