Review your "Likes" so they don't embarrass you
Your "Likes" say a lot about you as a person
Your Facebook “Likes” reveal a lot more about you than just what your favourite music or movies are.
Employers and recruiters make assumptions about your personality based upon them and use them as an indicator of cultural fit within an organisation.
So you must always be mindful of who and what you are publicly endorsing.
An example of 'Likes' on a Facebook profile
Social Check Recommends:
1. Activate your privacy settings
By default your likes are public, consider partitioning off your “Likes” on Facebook. Review your privacy settings to restrict the public visibility of your “Likes” (See instructions in ‘Further Reading’ link).
2. View your likes from the perspective of an employer or recruiter
Be aware when posting, ‘liking’ or commenting about your political views, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation. Employers, clients or colleagues may make judgments or even discriminate against you based on what you like. Look at your ‘Likes’ from their perspective and complete an audit to align your “Likes” to your professional brand.
