The Social Networks You Should Join For A Better Online Reputation

Your search results can paint a picture of who you are to prospective employers. If those results contain negative items, it can hurt your chances. Online reputation-correcting web app Brand Yourself crunched some numbers and found out which sites did the best job at improving how you appear in Google search results.

Right at the top is LinkedIn, followed by Twitter, Facebook and Zerply. These are the top five sites worth joining if you want to improve your online reputation, according to Brand Yourself. But the numbers also pointed to choices in other types of content. For example, if you’re making a personal blog, WordPress ranked the highest in search results. If you’re posting videos, Vimeo is a better option than YouTube. For photos, Flickr was pretty much the only one that actually showed up.
