JohnMHoyt Android, Apple, Business, Cisco, Connectivity, Homeland Secure IT, iPad, iPhone, Microsoft, Mobile, Sales, Social Media, Technology, Trend Micro, WatchGuard 0 Comments

I have a hard time trusting people who are not active and open on social media. My perception is that they are hiding something… What are some reasons for NOT using social media to connect with people and share either your personal or business life (or in my case, both)???
