Social media is definitely a great thing, but sometimes you leave a lot of trash on the media and it stays there forever. Often times, just because people don’t delete their old accounts and content, they just leave it there. A few years later there may still be old accounts on the net that show the shame of our youth and a lot of recklessness.

McAfee has “put it on paper” in a study or survey that 75 percent of respondents have at least one profile that is no longer maintained on social media. 33 percent of respondents can no longer remember their old passwords. For these and other reasons, old and sometimes embarrassing content persists on the web.

In their survey, McAfee asked users what they considered the most embarrassing content and created the following top 10:

  1. Drunk behavior
  2. Shameful / Inappropriate Outfits
  3. Offensive comments
  4. Embarrassing events
  5. Content that curses the user
  6. Content that shows the user asleep
  7. Defective clothing, such as sagging pants
  8. In underwear
  9. Violent behavior when leaving
  10. Kissing someone who shouldn’t have been kissed

Embarrassing content can have fatal consequences: In the application process, many potential employers specifically look for information that they can find on the Internet. Of course, they quickly land on applicants’ social media profiles, regardless of whether they are current or old. However, as the survey showed, some Germans are not at all aware of this: more than a quarter admit that they only delete posts after a crisis and one in ten even post negative content from their own workplace.
