Can Social Media Really Affect an Athletes Reputation?

Well, it’s true. Social media can affect almost everything and everyone. Athletes are affected far more than the average American though. Ever since technology advanced, people have been posting on social media and, more often than not, some people ‘over-share’ on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
‘Over-sharing’ is kind of a new phenomenon. Sometimes people share the little details of their life like what they had for lunch or dinner. Some people post what they’re doing throughout their day even. It depends on each person though.
Certain athletes had been banned from social media before; at least during the season, but now, some are beginning to be a bit more flexible with it.
One thing anybody has to remember is that their reputation is always on the line. This is especially important for anybody though, including anyone who is anyone. Athletes have to be extremely careful about what they do. Anyone with a phone that is capable of recording video or snapping pictures can be a reporter. It really makes you think when just a comment can hit social media and then people take the comment the wrong way. Then you get criticized and people think less of you as a whole. That has to be a little hard, but probably easy to adapt to thinking before you speak. It’s a good lesson though for anyone, watch what is said and post or speak accordingly. That by itself might make the world a better place.
