Scottsdale, Arizona - JW Maxx Solutions knows that people love to share information on the Internet, especially via social media. Sometimes, however, people share too much information that could potentially damage their online reputation and even lead them to be targeted by criminals. The online reputation experts at JW Maxx Solutions are now revealing their top tips and advice to keep people safe when posting on social media.

1. Think twice about what is posted.

JW Maxx Solutions recommends that social media users always think twice before posting pictures and statuses. When posting a status it is important to consider what those who have access to the page would think. This includes family, friends, coworkers and bosses. It is possible on Facebook, for example, to block certain postings from being seen by specified people, however, it is usually best to just not post the status, information or pictures at all if it is necessary to think about whether it would be appropriate for certain people to see the posting.

2. Refrain from posting identifying information.

It is important to remember that private is usually not very private when it comes to social media. There are plenty of ways that hackers can get around privacy settings and see a person's information. Therefore, it is extremely important to keep as much personal information off of the Internet as possible. Online reputation specialist JW Maxx Solutions advises against posting a person's middle name, phone number, and address. All of this information is private and could be used to target someone.

3. Regularly check tagged pictures and un-tag old pictures.

Tagging is both the bane and the beauty of the Internet. It is possible to share pictures, videos, content, statuses and more with friends and family through tagging. Sometimes, however, the content that is posted is unprofessional and inappropriate. In these instances, it is important to un-tag this content so that it cannot be searched with a person's name, and does not show up on social media profiles. When out with friends, especially if at a party, it is important to be wary and careful of any pictures that are taken that could find their way onto social media.

By following these simple and easy tips, individuals will be able to improve their online reputations and safeguard them against being targeted with embarrassing content. For more information about the online reputation protection services that JW Maxx Solutions offers, visit
