JW Maxx Solutions is an industry-leader in online reputation management and is providing college students with the top three tips for maintaining a positive online reputation.

Scottsdale, Arizona - College students are some of the most technologically inclined individuals on the planet right now. These students are constantly connected to their phones, laptops and tablets. College students are also avid users of social media.

Online reputation management experts, JW Maxx Solutions, is sharing tips on how college students can protect their online reputation and maintain a positive presence through steps they can implement with ease.

1. Be wary of posting pictures

One of the most common ways that college students get into trouble in respects to their online reputations is through the posting of inappropriate pictures. When at a party or out in public, JW Maxx Solutions advises college students to refrain from taking pictures while intoxicated, or when in compromising positions. Once a picture has been posted, it can be copied, pasted, shared and saved. Even if the picture has been removed, it could still be floating around on the Internet landscape.

2. Know when you`re tagged

Whether it`s on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or a whole host of other social media platforms, college students always need to think twice about the pictures that they are posting. Students should also be wary of posing for pictures, and should be aware of any pictures that could be taken when they are not paying attention. Tagged pictures show up on both the pages of the poster and the person who has been tagged, which can spell disaster for an online reputation.

3. Refrain from ranting

Oftentimes, college students will be frustrated with their lives, their teachers, their schoolwork and more. JW Maxx Solutions advises that students should be wary of posting any sort of angry rants on any subject. It is best to refrain from using profanity and vulgar language when updating a status or commenting online. Prospective employers are browsing applicants` social media profiles for damaging content, and obscenity is definitely a factor that these employers consider.
