Social Media Disclosure
The following describes the Social Media Disclosure for the MyWizardAds website and blog.
Social Media Issue
We live in an interesting time when privacy rights are championed alongside an unprecedented voluntary willingness
of people to share their most intimate and superfluous life details with the world, even in places such as the
MyWizardAds website and blog. While apparently benign on the surface, the dangers of unrestrained public disclosure
of sensitive information is beginning to surface.
Key social media players are being sued for unauthorized or abusive use/misuse of personal information. Failure to
protect and warn are likely going to be focal factors. Lawsuits are filed seeking damages for statements held to be
responsible for people's death or suicide. Bloggers presuming to operate under an unfettered freedom of speech or
greater latitude offered to members of the press are losing civil cases for defamation, slander, libel, and so on.
As social media rapidly advances to allow more technologically sophisticated and easy dissemination, the
simultaneous fallout of revelation without boundaries is mounting. Thus, a sober approach to the benefits of social
media, while sidestepping the perils of imprudent disclosure, can facilitate an enjoyable online experience,
without the consequences of excess, in settings such as our own MyWizardAds website and blog.
Presence/Scope of Social Media
You should assume that social media is in use on the MyWizardAds website and blog. A simple click of a button to
endorse a person, product, or service is building a cumulative profile about you, which you should always assume
can be discovered by others. Attempting to share a website with someone, whether by direct press of a button or
else by email forwarding facilitated on a website, you should assume that this may not stop with the intended
recipient, and that this can generate information about you that could be seen by a veritable infinite number of
people. Such a domino effect could initiate right here on the MyWizardAds website and blog.
Something as simple as a blog comment provides the opportunity for knee-jerk reactions that can become public and
may not truly represent a position (at least in strength or severity) that you might hold after a period of more
reasoned contemplation. You should also note that the ease of accessing one site through the login credentials of
another, or the use of a global login for access to multiple sites can accumulate a dossier on you and your online
behaviour that may reveal more information to unintended parties than you might realize or want. Any or all of
these features could exist on the MyWizardAds website and blog at one time or another.
These few examples illustrate some possible ways that social media can exist, though it is not an exhaustive list
and new technologies will render this list outdated quickly. The objective is to realize the reach of social media,
its widespread presence on websites in various forms (including this website), and develop a responsible approach
to using it.
You should recognize the fact that divulgences made in and on social media platforms on this website and others are
rarely constrained just to you. Disclosures are commonly made about group matters that necessarily affect and
impact other people. Other disclosures are expressly about third parties, sometimes with little discretion. What
can appear funny in one moment can be tragic in the next. And a subtle "public" retaliation can have lifetime
Ideal use of social media on our website would confine your disclosures primarily to matters pertaining to you, not
others. If in doubt, it's best to err on the side of non-disclosure. It's doubtful the disclosure is so meaningful
that it cannot be offset by the precaution of acting to protect the best interests of someone who is involuntarily
being exposed by your decision to disclose something on the MyWizardAds website and blog (or another).
You should likewise pause to consider the long-term effects of a split-second decision to publicly share private
information about yourself on the MyWizardAds website and blog. Opinions, likes, dislikes, preferences, and
otherwise can change. Openly divulging perspectives that you hold today, may conflict with your developing views
into the futures. Yet, the "new you" will always stand juxtaposed against the prior declarations you made that are
now concretized as part of your public profile. While the contents of your breakfast may hold little long-term
impact, other data likewise readily shared can have consequences that could conceivably impact your ability to
obtain certain employment or hinder other life experiences and ambitions.
As with sharing information about other people, extreme caution should be used before revealing information about
yourself. If in doubt, it's likely best not to do it. The short term gain, if any, could readily be outweighed by
later consequences. Finally, you should note that we are not responsible for removing content once shared, and we
may not be able to do so.
Restrictions on Use of Social Media Data
You, as a visitor to the MyWizardAds website and blog, are not permitted to "mine" social media or other platforms
contained herein for personal information related to others. Even where people have publicly displayed data, you
should not construe that as though you have the liberty to capture, reproduce, or reuse that information. Any use
of social media or related platforms on our website are for interactive use only, relevant only during the website
Accuracy of Social Media Data
As any social media platform is built on user-generated content, you should consider this fact in seeking to
determine the authenticity of anything you read. We are not responsible for verifying any user-generated content
for accuracy. A best practices policy would be to view all such content as strictly opinion, not fact.
Potential Issues of Liability
You should also be mindful of the fact that your words could trigger liability for harm caused to others. While you
have the right to free speech, you do not have the right to damage other people. Under basic principles of tort
law, you are always responsible, personally, for situations where either:
o You were required to act, but did not (i.e. - some "duty of care")
o Your were required to refrain from acting, but did not (i.e. - slander, defamation, etc.).
These "sins of omission and commission" could cause problems for you, irrespective of whether you assert you are
conducting business under the guise of one or more business entities.
Illegal and unethical conduct, when done in the name of a corporation or LLC, is still illegal and unethical
conduct. As it is rarely part of a business plan to engage in illegal and unethical conduct, you are doubtfully
operating in any official capacity, but rather, perhaps, leveraging that capacity to effectuate personal
You should consult a licensed attorney if you wish legal advice as to the (potential) ramification of your
situation or legal problems stemming from this website or another.
