You’ve finally made it! What seems like the longest four years in high school is finally over. There was laughter, tears, and sweat (probably during PE), but you now see the light at the end of the tunnel. Plenty of memories have been made with your friends during classes, after school, on the weekends, but now it’s time to say goodbye.
You might be moving hours away from your closest friends to attend your dream college or perhaps you’re staying close to home. Either way, you’re about to take the next step into adulthood and you’re closing this chapter of your life forever.
But before all of that, you’ve watched three graduating classes throw the biggest parties and celebrate harder than ever, and now it’s your turn. Obviously, you want to document ALL of it right?
Well, we’re here to remind you to think before you post on social media.
Why shouldn’t things live on your social media profiles
Your senior year of high school was probably the most stressful yet best year of your life. From working on your college applications to attending all your high school grad events. It has been a whirlwind of emotions. You’ve probably never laughed as hard as you have with your friends, maybe even made some viral TikToks, but do those need to stay on your social media profiles forever?
You may want to document all these memories so you can look back at them 10 or 20 years from now, but not every photo you’ve taken needs to be shared online. With so many social media platforms available and accessible by everyone, any stranger could learn all about you in just a few clicks.
Looking at it right now, you might be thinking, why would this matter? Why should I care? Well, think about it this way, in four years you’ll be graduating from college and begin to apply for your dream job, but what if we told you that you got rejected because of what you posted on social media back in your senior year of high school? There’s nothing worse than losing something you’ve worked so hard towards for something you have control over.

There’s still time to clean it up
It’s OK if you’ve posted some embarrassing stuff on your social media, you still have time to clean it up.
To make your life easier, start with our social media scrubber. You don’t want to spend your summer combing through every tweet or post you’ve shared over the last five years of your life. You probably want to go out and spend these last moments with your friends.
You can detect any potentially harmful posts you’ve made in the past in just a matter of minutes using the LifeBrand AI software. After our scanner has finished doing a thorough scrub on your profiles, it’s time for you to choose which posts you want to keep and which ones you want to delete.
Moving forward, before posting something on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or even TikTok, think to yourself, would I be comfortable showing this to a potential employer? If the answer is no, then you should probably not be posting it online.
End your high school experience the right away, and get ready to make an awesome first impression on new friends, classmates and employers during the next chapter of your life.
What are you waiting for? It’s time to clean up those embarrassing posts.
