After the panel discussion at the Competitive Intelligence Forum I connected with a few of the attendees via LinkedIn. I got talking with one lady via Linkedin and we were talking about what what you should and shouldn't say online. Here is an excerpt from my message to her:
You are wise to be prudent online. A good gauge is to ask yourself "Would I be happy with this being read in court of law?" But good to not get too hung up on it though. Caution is the killer of achievement.
It's true that one should be cautious when using social media but I don't think that it should get in the way of productivity. What do you think?
