Everyone and their grandmother (literally) are connected to social media these days. More than ever this form of communication is becoming common place in society. No longer is it just for teenagers posting about school, break-ups, and the embarrassing pimple on their nose. With that being said, maybe we should think before we post.

According to a new report, turning down young job candidates because of what they post on social media has become commonplace. The report, by On Device Research, states that 1 in 10 people between ages 16 and 34 have been turned down for a new job because of photos or comments on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and other social networking sites.

Just as in real life, what you say or do online has consequences. Be wise. Ask yourself, should I say it? Is this picture appropriate? And more importantly, is this a good representation of Christ?

Do you have a “think before you post story?”
