No, this isn’t Meshwork Marketing getting into the life coach field. This is about managing your social media life. Depending on your goals, you may need to set boundaries between your professional and personal lives.
Let’s talk work. As working professionals, most of us may use LinkedIn for our professional activities (B2B lead generation, job search and more). We use the tools here to learn more about other companies, tweak our resume or search for job candidates. Naturally, we have to keep a professional face on all activities here.
Now, let’s get personal. We then segregate our personal social network activity to tools like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. To state the obvious, whether you’re trying to make new friends, connect with old friends, or are looking for a job, discretion is a priority. You can have fun, but be sensible because your digital footprint can come back to haunt you.
