Digital Friday: Can’t Pay Your Bills? You might get called out on Facebook | Black Life Coaches Network
Much has been made of the fact that social media can potentially damage your credit score. Banks are looking at your online profiles for signs that you might be a risk – photos that show what could be considered irresponsible behavior, tweets about lavish spending, even the profiles of your friends could be scrutinized. If your friends seem like bad credit risks, well, you know the old saying about “birds of a feather.” Lenders are also using you to troll for new prospects as well. Since you just got a new mortgage, maybe your friends are in the market for a loan too and that’s when the unsolicited solicitations begin. And while this all seem like a bit much for most people already, one company out there is trying to take it to a whole other level.
