It has become so easy to be a media creator in this day and age. Facebook, Myspace... have made it so easy to get yourself on the web. Almost every one that I know has signed up for at least one of these websites to keep in contact with friends, to keep people updated on their own lives, and inevitably to "stalk" anyone that crosses their eye. Thus, with my Facebook profile I have created media, I have put my thoughts, my interests, my taste in music, movies and books for everyone to see. Yet I still must be careful about what I have on-line. Many of my friends, who are seniors or juniors applying for jobs and everything are forced to take pictures down or remove friend comments for fear that they may be seen by possible companies and could cost them a job in the future. Facebook and Myspace are changing the professional world, and the way that companies hire for good.
