People may think you’re crazy, but you spend all your life making it so that other people will have written a book. Or, as the thought has come down into my own statements about my work: to give voice to others, keeping none for yourself. What I myself took from that previous generation was this…

"Strictly business"

I recently found a reblog comment from ages ago about my use of “strictly business” (in scare quotes), so throwing this out for wider discussion.

What is acceptable/unacceptable sharing across social media when personal and professional lines cross (which is most of the time)?

No one expects automatons who only speak in approved commentary, but there must be a point when your social media profile is not a business one and you should reconsider adding it to your resume, adding it to curated lists of people who do X, etc.

Say when 90% of what you post has nothing to do with your job/study, then it’s not a professional outlet, it’s a personal one.

I’ve seen too many posts that people will come to regret. I’ve hovered over the ‘send’ button before deciding ‘nobody cares’. And we must all have encountered those pictures where you said to yourself: “wow, this person probably though only their 5 followers who they know IRL would see this, but as it’s public, now I’m watching and judging them” (and I’m talking perfectly normal pics).

At some point you need to make a decision about which person you are presenting and to whom.

Agree? Disagree?
