Why You Should be Careful What to Post on Social Media

Today, while browsing a bit, I saw a funny screen cap of a GitHub issue. I was interested in the full story, so I googled for it. It has been deleted on GitHub, which just got me more interested. Over at cachedview.com, I looked at it in Googles cache.

I was interested how he got in the situation he described and clicked on the authors username to read his profile. It was also deleted. Secrets! How could I resist going further now. I googled his name. Literally the first link was to his medium.com profile where he's been active in the past. His first comment is about some quite controversial issue and kinda sexist.

So just out of curiosity I spent a few minutes googling someone and found right out about his personal views, before anything else. I guess you should be a bit more reflective about your online presence, especially if you have crude views. You hear examples like this often, but it was interesting to me what you can find out by accident about someone from the other side of the world, just by seeing a funny picture on some website.

Stay safe!
