Do you "friend" your co-workers, clients, or service recipients on Facebook? What about LinkedIn? Are your tweets appropriate for all audiences? Andrew Heller discussed the risks of oversharing in his NTEN blog post Social Media and Privacy: Best Practices for Managing Your Personal and Professional Identities. His basic advice: "Be Prepared. Be mindful of your online presence. Think thrice before acting." He provides an extensive list of best practices and privacy options for using social media. In his blog post Separating Personal and Professional Networks Online, Andy Shandlain lamented that "separating personal and professional networks can be a desirable, but elusive goal." His article and the comments provide some suggestions about how to separate the two. I like the advice passed along by the Red Cross’s Wendy Harman at the recent NTEN conference: "If I wouldn’t go out for a beer with you and pay for a round, then I probably won’t friend you in Facebook."
