An Inextricable Connection

Posted by admin | Uncategorized | Tuesday 23 March 2010 1:01 am

This article points out a truth that too few people in the un defamation industry understand, which is that your online reputation is inextricably connected to your personal or business reputation. That is to say, anything that you or your company does that is highly positive or negative, in reality, will be reflected in your online reputation.

This brings me to my second point about personal reputation versus your online reputation and how people perceive you. For example, if you are in a position in life such as a journalist where you are supposed to be unbiased, having your opinions about political elections or other controversial issues posted on your site could alienate readers, or cause you to be challenged about your reliability and integrity.

The author is certainly right–the line between our online and real-world lives is blurring. Whether that is for the better or worse, I don’t know.
