It's true. I'm experiencing a Facebook dilemma. Lame that it's even possible in our society. This place where real relationships can exist solely over messages, wall posts and status updates. Gah!
I almost died along with the rest of the young people out there when Mark Zuckerberg and his team added the creepy updates about what your friends were doing at any given moment. And now, I'm even more addicted to f-book than I was before. The problem however, is that after this conference people have been adding me left and right and I don't know what to do.
Being the twenty something I am, I enjoy posting most of my photos (which may occasionally include a few beer bottles/glasses of wine and crazy good times) there so my friends can snag them and even had my blog linked, until yesterday. I had previously set "limited profiles" for some people (colleagues), but then realized few people had done the same to me. Therefore my profile looks like I'm a female, interested in males, who is liberal and has a job. Wow, Miss Personality. So, I "unlimited profiled" them and now have a personality, however unprofessional that may be.
I must say, it's a real dilemma. Working in the sector I do, things aren't super formal and my feeling is that I really don't post much on f-book that I wouldn't tell someone if they asked. Hm... But as for the blog, it just felt too personal to be sitting out there in la la land for colleagues to read. I had to delete the link.
Tell me, what's your take on the whole facebook profile? Keep it professional? Fun & Realistic? Keep colleagues on limited profile access with no ability to see photos? At some point I may want to go into something more corporate, but is a casual facebook profile really going to hamper those opportunities? I don't know.
