1 How much do you like to know about a sub­ject be­fore stat­ing an opin­ion? A) Lit­eral, ac­tual lived

ex­pe­ri­ence B) I have a doc­tor­ate in 30-sec­ond Wikipedia scan­ning C) LOL 2 “I have no fil­ter” is: A) An ex­cuse ar­se­holes use to blithely sham­ble through life, of­fend­ing peo­ple B) A good rea­son not to use so­cial me­dia while drunk C) Your Twit­ter bio, LOL 3 Have you ever @tagged a celebrity? A) What? Why? No B) Maybe once when I was com­pli­ment­ing their new al­bum/film/novel C) How else will I get @ The­re­al­don­aldtrump to see my sweet meme about Me­la­nia’s tits? 4 Face­book’s pol­icy on tem­po­rar­ily block­ing ac­counts for ‘hate speech’ is: A) A trans­par­ent PR ex­er­cise af­ter all that Rus­sian bot con­tro­versy B) A good start but too

un­fo­cused to be ef­fec­tive C) Ruin­ing your fuck­ing life 5 The last dis­agree­ment you had on­line was: A) About a mi­nor point of

gram­mar. (You con­ceded.) B) In­fu­ri­at­ing. You still think about it, like, a month later C) All-caps shout­ing JET FUEL CAN’T MELT STEEL BEAMS at an en­gi­neer AN­SWERS: Mostly As: You’re all clear. So­cial me­dia gaffes will never cost you a pro­mo­tion be­cause your on­line per­sona is per­fectly sen­si­ble. If a lit­tle dull. Mostly Bs: Eh, you’re okay. You ex­press your­self on­line, but you at least try to be con­scious of man­ners. Mostly Cs: You’re the worst. Your nat­u­ral home is a sub­ter­ranean lair be­neath the sprawl­ing Nordic wilder­ness of Trøn­de­lag; that noise you hear is billy goats trip-trap­ping across the roof. Log off, now – for ev­ery­one’s sake.
