View Diary: Want To Get Your Diary Noticed? (146 comments)

  •  I use FB for family and friends only (0+ / 0-)

    and I have nobody with whom I work or have a professional relationship as a FB friend.  I think that would be deadly.

    For social networking on a professional level I use Linked-In.  This is a completely different group of connections vs. FB.

    On blogs I always use an alias and not my name.  I don't want something I say online to have a negative impact on my ability to work.

    I googled some of the ID's I use on different sites on Google once and found out that a website I use for looking at real estate had published my real name along with my user ID.  I was furious and cancelled my account there.  And then I had to find all the places where I was using the same alias and change or cancel those accounts.  It was one big pain in the butt.

    I work for an ultra-conservative accounting firm and I really, really need my paycheck.  So at this point keeping work separate from politics is imperative.

    I hope someday to get the heck out of that company, and find a livelihood that is in keeping with my values.  But for now it is paying my bills.

    I fall down, I get up, I keep dancing.
