An anonymous reader writes "One prevailing problem every modern person on Earth now has in common is a severe loss of privacy and anonymity. There is an astonishing amount of information available to the regular person, but conversely that same regular person is now intimately tied to any organization that seeks information on them. This is a change that has happened so quickly and so profoundly that people from all classes now have to adapt their way of thinking or face the consequences of intimate exposure to unwelcome eyes on social media everywhere.

Still, people who want a job must use social media creatively to reverse the risk of losing an opportunity into the possibility of finding one.
