monitoring your reputation...

the internet has had a massive impact on the way people build reputations, some good and some bad. in addition, it's also had a large impact on how others can affect yours. this article on canada.com about dalhousie university and an animal rights group on facebook suggests it's very important to be diligent in knowing who and what people are saying about you online. everyone now have a very large and for the most part legally unobstructed mega phone that reaches the globe. however, i believe that it's only a matter of time before lawyers and law makers find ways to impact this issue.

there have been cases where this type of publicity has had devastating effects on peoples lives regardless of the content being true. the one thing it seems the internet cannot change, is poor human behavior and lack of character.
