Almost everyone on the internet today has a Facebook, Twitter or some other form of internet social networking web presence. However there can be a down side to sharing information with others.
Few realize that we are creating a presence that will likely be around long after we are gone. Carefully managing our personal information is important and how we brand ourselves is becoming an increasingly important component for both personal and professional success.
Being on a social networking site is like renting a home or apartment there is no long term ownership involved.
Creating a personal web brand, presence, or establishing an online celebrity with a personal website allows us full control over how we present ourselves to others and creates web authority that we own and can use how we like.
