The Main object of this research will be to gauge whether currently there is a potentially a social media stage that could cause current undergraduate students damaged public images, which could cause them to lose potential careers and jobs due to badly portraying themselves vial social media and if so what can be done to foster a better or “Best Practice” social media image environment for undergraduate students to avoid creating a bad social media public image of themselves; which warranted asking the following question: Do students comprehend the possible long term and short term damage that can be cause to their future careers via uneducated social media postings; and have students already damaged their future career potentials with improper social media etiquette?
