Social media is still like the wild wild west (sans Will Smith) and you should always have that little voice in the back of your brain asking you a few questions before you post. For the most part, you probably post safe-for-work stuff on Twitter and the other big networks. But how exactly can the wrong post affect you? Check out this handy visual for a bit of insight.

The guide runs through some handy tidbits you should know. For example, what can you post on Facebook, what’s allowed on Tumblr, and how often do people post their location?
