New Milestone

It’s a pleasure to write and share about issues ranging from design, technology, media to current happenings. I hope you’ll find what you need and learn something fascinating!

The more I blog, the more I write, and the better writer I’d be. My quest to put up new content regularly leads me to research for new information that keeps me up to date.

I realised it’s not easy being a blogger, I need to position myself differently in this community.

Basics of Social Media Privacy

Social networking has many benefits but it’s important that you do everything you can to ensure that your social networking profile remains private.

The number one tip I always tell myself: Think before you post anything to facebook and twitter!

Anything that is publicly available online could be seen by your bosses and other people so, before you post any information or images, consider whether it could cause you embarrassment or potentially damage your career. You need to think of how you want to be perceive online.
