Social Media Disclaimer for Students - Social media can be a very powerful tool for college graduates that are entering the professional world.  Social media is also a tool that companies and recruiters use to pre-screen candidates.  Information published to the Internet becomes the domain of all persons, including potential future employers.  Use of abusive and/or threatening language, defamatory statements, and references to illegal drugs, profanity, sexually explicit posts, poor spelling, highly emotional religious or political commentary, or photos documenting consumption of alcohol can have negative impacts on potential employers consideration of you as a candidate.
