Clark Howard: Social accidents
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If you're in an auto accident, it's such a terrible event.
Do you know social media can make it worse for you? Just as people are snooping on you all the time, seeing what's going on with you in social media.
Now insurance adjusters are doing the same thing. After an accident, after you claim injuries, they're trying to see what you're up to. Let me tell you something else that they look for. If before an accident, they see that you're spending a lot of time at bars, they might make noises that maybe you had some fault in the accident. Maybe you like to drink a little.
Believe it or not-- what you do in social media can end up following you in a number of different ways. The Blog Daily Finance says be really careful what you do with social media after an accident because it can haunt you.
