Social Media Saturday: That Time You Said Too Much

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Oops. We did it again. We overshared. Coulda been a status update where delete would have been the better option. Coulda been a tweet from a, uh, unsavory source. Coulda been one or two or ten million things that we prob’ly obviously should not have put out there.

Can I just say, we’ve all been there, done that.

Trust me.
