By now, we've all heard how employers use your social media (or lack thereof) in hiring practices. But did you know that what you put out there can also affect your insurance rates??? What we're about to tell you is eye opening!

Of course, we all know that the things we put out there can have negative influences on people we might like to impress, but many of us don't think about the impression made upon people we DON'T care to impress!

Check out this entire list as well as the subsequent suggestions to prevent social media hurting your insurance rates. Be sure to help someone else by sharing this article.
