Do you need to work on your social media etiquette?

There is very little doubt that social media is increasingly becoming more prominent in our lives. Whether it’s following a brand or communicating with friends and family, our lives are progressively being displayed on screen more. However with so much of our personal content being shared on-line it is becoming increasingly apparent there is a need to be watchful about what you post.

In light of the last week a new app called ‘FaceWash’ was launched. The app finds and helps to locate and remove anything profane from your Facebook profile by scanning photos, posts, likes and links posted etc. for offensive content. The app flags a whole host of words but also contains a search bar for specific searches. Thus cleaning up your social media manners and giving your profile a ‘fresh face’.
