Do you post your own original content (words, pictures, music and anything else you can think of) on any platform other than one you own? This can be LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, forums and any number of sites that take contributed content. If you do, double check who holds the rights to the content you post. It’s natural to assume that all content is yours to do with as you wish, but it ain’t necessarily so.

Simply by posting your content on a third party site, you could be handing over the rights to that content. That means the third party can edit, repost, publish etc as it suits them, and you will receive no income from this and have no grounds to object. Check the small print.
