As much as I love/hate so­cial me­dia, I can’t imag­ine a world with­out NeighTwitBookIn­staChat. I mean, what else would I do dur­ing long bor­ing meet­ings?

But while so­cial me­dia plat­forms have be­come an es­sen­tial part to most of our lives (nearly 90 per cent of Ki­wis aged 15 years or older use so­cial me­dia), many of us are still not us­ing it ‘‘cor­rectly’’.

We all have our pet peeves about so­cial me­dia (who’s sick of see­ing baby pho­tos?), and sadly it’s all too com­mon to hear sto­ries about – or be sub­jected to – online bul­ly­ing. So how can you avoid some of the most fre­quently made so­cial me­dia pit­falls? pho­tos of your­self on so­cial me­dia af­ter­wards might come back to haunt you when it comes to your cur­rent job or any fu­ture em­ploy­ment. If your friend is the one post­ing the pic­tures, sim­ply un­tag your­self.
