The management of online behavior is dependent on the degree to which they can be identifiable as well as the personal sensitivity of the information to the people who upload this information. There are also concerns about how the information that is uploaded on to the social media sites is managed since it has a capacity to affect the reputation and professions of the people who upload this information.
