Are ‘Reputation Scores’ Coming in the Future From Your Online Presence?

reputationThe Internet expands and evolves constantly. Whether we like it or not, it’s not going away, and its capacity for data expands without stop. Every infinitesimal piece of data we put into the Internet finds a place to live.

There are always a few basic things to keep in mind when you post a profile (whether for social or business reasons), post photos, tweet your thoughts, send an email, put up a website or sign an online petition:

[message type=”custom” width=”100%” start_color=”#FFFFFF” end_color=”#FFFFFF” border=”#fb7200″ color=”# fb7200″]

The Internet will find room to squeeze your data in alongside everyone else’s.
Your posting represents you, your image, your brand, what you’re about.
Once you click the send button, your posting is out and can’t be re-called.
There is probably an infinite capacity to store your golden words.
You do not want embarrassment or worse to haunt you later.[/message][su_spacer]

Now that I have given you “Barbara’s General Posting Rules,” we can explore this conundrum where infinite capacity allows transitory data to exist long beyond its intended lifespan.

Those who purport postings are forever are in the majority to be sure. They come from media, law, academia, etc. While they may not take an absolute point of view, they are not very optimistic that things will change.

By and large they feel society needs to change in terms of openness and forgiveness.  Many believe a new legal system is needed that allows reputation bankruptcy (so that you can start over) and the right to be forgotten.

  1. I commented on the click through – but one more thing …. even if you have zero social media presence – you will be amazed what I can find out about you, for very little effort and not very much – if any – money.
