Honesty is the best policy

A good reputation on the internet is important, no matter if you are employee, employer, student, applicant, or  freelancer. We have already discussed in our Yasni blog how Yasni can help to recognize one’s own traces and how to actively protect them. It is not that difficult at all: To surf the internet with a common sense, to check regularly the latest traces to one’s own name with Yasni’s free e-mail monitoring, and to use our Exposé to be found better by new customers and employers via search engines such as Yasni and Google.


Here are a some informative statements to the topic:

“Everything is transparent, also negative experiences.“

If personal data are publicly available on the web, customers and HR representatives can find them. Also the negative data. Thus, it is important to become aware of what can be found to one’s own name on the internet. Only then one can counteract, commentate, correct, or place new positive information on the internet.

“The first ORM rule, honesty is the best policy“

Not every negative information has to stay so. Often one can change a negative article or a poor evaluation in something positive by reacting kindly and objective to criticism, regardless of whether this criticism is justified or not. Everyone should always take cricism seriously and be aware of one’s own mistakes. To bury one’s head in the sand does not help at all. If one can deal with it honestly and in a competent way it will have a positive affect, because the internet never forgets, not even the positive things. Thank Goodness!

Manage your online reputation

It is not always easy searching for a job on the internet. Inaccurate information in your curriculum vitae can be easily checked on the internet and, therefore, damage your career. It is well-known that companies search for appropriate candidates and check their appearance on the internet. Thus, a professional presentation on the internet is essential, if you want to make progress with your job search. In this context, Yasni offers its free Exposé and Exposé Promotion. Because nowadays nobody and nothing is private any longer, everyone should actively manage one’s own online reputation by oneself. Otherwise, it could have negative effects. Whoever cannot provide a professional online presentation or even cannot be found on the internet possibly won’t be able to find a job in the future anymore.

Therefore, Yasni supports the opinion that an applicant should actively represent oneself on the internet including all strengths, interests and expert knowledge. Hence, Yasni offers its free Exposé and Exposé Promotion, as already mentioned above. One should rather see this transparency as a chance. Intimate information, of course, should certainly not be available on the internet. Thus, it is important to regularly check one’s own online traces. Regarding to all this, Yasni can perfectly assist you as a search engine including the free e-mail monitoring.

Is it up to parents to protect children online?

That’s what Naomi Gummer says, a public policy analyst at Google. By her opinion, parents are to blame if children view pornography online and it’s up to them to protect their children online. She said it was a myth that laws can prevent children from viewing explicit material:

“The idea that laws can adequately protect young people is a myth. Technology is moving so fast that legislation is a blunt tool for addressing these challenges. But also the truth is that parents are complicit in their kids using underage social networking sites. It is about education, not using legislative leavers.”

Interesting fact: 25% of kids have seen sexual images, but only 14% saw them online.

What do you think? Should it be up to parents to stop their children watching porn? Is it possible to control everything from YouTube to Facebook to Pinterest? And how can Yasni help parents to protect their children?
