Five Social Media Tips To Protect Your Future From Your Online Past

If you're like most people, you probably have some pictures or posts online that you may not be 100 per cent proud of. As social media becomes completely ingrained in our everyday lives, crossover between your social and work lives becomes harder to avoid. That doesn't mean that those old pictures on Facebook should keep you from getting that job you are applying for, but you are going to have to take some steps to ensure that what you did in the past doesn't harm your future.

With more and more employers going online to check out possible candidates for positions, even if you aren't in the middle of a job hunt or applying to get into school, it can be a good idea to take stock of your online presence. From doing an online audit to changing your privacy settings, these are some simple steps to clean up your online persona. While these tips are aimed at students and job seekers, they can be applied to anyone who wants to examine his online profile in more detail.

 

March Madness Live 2014

 

While NCAA basketball may not generate the same tidal wave of momentum in Canada every March as it does for our neighbours down south, there are still plenty of hoops fans who want to stay connected to the action. The NCAA has always been ahead of the digital curve, offering streaming options, robust apps and plenty of social elements to keep up the chatter about the tournament.

With a redesigned mobile app and even more ways to follow your brackets, if you haven't downloaded the new March Madness app for your phone or tablet, now's the perfect time, with the opening few days of the tournament offering up some of the best basketball you will see all year.

 

Download of the Week: Graze -- Live

 

Juno nominees Graze (Adam Marshall and Christian "XI"Andersen) may be a relatively new act, but both producers have long-term connections to the Canadian electronic music scene. Marshall is one of the most respected DJs/producers to come out of the Big Smoke's house and techno scene, while Andersen made his own mark in the dubstep and bass community. Together as Graze, they have generated a significant buzz off the strength of their EPs, debut album and gritty live show.

Andersen will be in town for a Graze DJ set as part of Junofest, playing on March 28 at the Met alongside fellow nominee Noah Pred and locals Joe Silva, Ali Khan, Solidaze, Jereme Oliver, Chris Komus and Nathan Zahn. Tickets are $15 at the door or use your all-access Junofest wristband, available at ticketmaster.ca.

 

Video of the Week: Islands -- Shotgun Vision

 

In town on March 21 for a gig at the Pyramid, indie-pop act Islands recently debuted a new video, shot at a tour stop at Pappy & Harriet's in Joshua Tree, Calif. Taken from the group's 2013 album, Ski Mask, Shotgun Vision is a great primer for the gig this week. Escondido opens the show. Tickets are $15 in advance at Into the Music, Soul Survivors and ticketmaster.ca.
