My Reputation Score on Social Media
Recently, I have taken a look into how I present myself on social media. I decided to find out what my reputation score is through a website called “Brand Yourself” and I was encouraged to find that I fell in the yellow portion of the score. I soon went to work and by following the steps they recommended I take, I was able to bump up my score to 675, putting me in the green area! Now, after a month of working on improving my social media reputation I am only able to say I have a score of 666. I didn’t end up increasing my score but overall I know I learned a lot about the reputation I am creating for myself online.
My First Score…
When I first looked at my reputation score I was in the yellow area, after a week or so of working at it, I soon got myself to a score of 666.
My second Score…
Well, after a month of updating my social media account and revising my accounts, I was only able to achieve a score of 666. Putting down by 9 points from my previous score.
Steps I Took To Increase Reputation Score
I looked at the top websites that appear after googling my name and I corrected the links that showed up under my name but were not related to me. By fixing this issue I have the correct information and links showing up after searching my name. Miscommunication and false information could have been negatively impacting my social media reputation with links unrelated to me. Now, I have positive links that represent who I am and are related to my life show up when searching my name. This had a great impact on my score and this definitely increased it the most.
Furthermore, I looked into my social media names and made sure I had both my first and last name with correct spelling and without nicknames. This made sure to tell people who I am and give myself a better opportunity to look professional online. Putting my full name on my social media accounts also reduces confusions when someone is trying to find me via social media. This pushed my score up significantly and made my reputation look a little more professional than before.
I also tried to go through my social media posts, including tweets, pictures, videos, and stories. I looked at the content I was posting and whether it could be viewed in a negative or demeaning way. If so, I either deleted the post or edited it to better represent the reputation I want for myself. Doing this did help me personally but I was unable to get any points through the website because this is a paid feature.
