Social Media Awareness

Date: March 28, 2024

As safety professionals, we are trained to think through situations with a discerning eye. In some instances, we need to be aware of the potential risks associated with sharing our lives on various social media platforms. We spend more time with our passengers than any other work group. We are the face of United. With that comes our first and last names being prominently displayed throughout the course of our workday. Be it our badge, our name bar or wings our names are often visible.

Take a moment for social media safety. Review your personal accounts and verify the kinds of information you have set to public access. Here are a few suggestions to help protect your privacy.

  • Consider making your profile private and verify what someone not in your friend circle could learn about you without your awareness.
  • Keep all your personal details such as work experience, places lived, contact info, and date of birth hidden from the public.
  • Secure your settings by requesting permission for tagging.
  • Never tag your locations when at layover hotels.

Our career choice affords us incredible opportunities to share our experiences with friends, family and even coworkers. Over the years it is a good practice to review who has the ability to view your accounts and if it is in your best interest to update who you grant access to your profiles.

Remember to trust your instincts, always be proactive, and make social media awareness a part of your life.
