Should I Keep My Personal and Professional Identities Completely Separate Online? | Lifehacker

Should I Keep My Personal and Professional Identities Completely Separate Online?  | Lifehacker | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it

Since this has come up several times in our class discussions recently, we thought that we'd post a couple of recent articles which address keeping your professional online identity separate from your personal one. Our experience is that you cannnot keep the two totally separate, and there will always be some overlap, but creating Facebook and Twitter pages for your business separate from your personal pages seems like a perfectly reasonable and logical thing to do. Bottom line is though that the only way to make 100% sure that your next potential employer doesn't see the pictures from your lost weekend in Vegas is not to put them out there...anywhere. Better still, don't take pictures of anything you wouldn't want showing up on the internet some day....

 

[H/T to super-curator, Martin Gysler for finding this. He sees to have an uncanny knack for coming up with the right information at the right moment.]

 

One question that seems to me to be very important. What is the best way to do, here are some interesting ideas about it. [note mg]

 

Dear Lifehacker,
I'm a pretty savvy person when it comes to getting my work on the web where people can see, but all this talk about Facebook passwords and things has me re-thinking my personal/professional boundaries. Should I set up completely separate accounts for my personal life and my professional life, or is that kind of misleading? How can I juggle privacy and openness, especially if I want to make a name for myself and get hired?
Sincerely,
Camera Shy

 

Dear Camera Shy,
Well, there's no clear yes or no answer here, and what's best for you will really come down to how much you want a potential employer to be able to find out about you. Balance that with exactly how strong your desire for privacy is, and you'll know where you come down on this issue. There are some ramifications to going either way though, and a comfortable compromise in the middle may work best for you—let's dig into that a bit.

For Actors & Voice Actors Who Plan to Start A Blog in 2012...7 NooB Blogger Blunders to Avoid  | Lifehack.org | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it

For those of you actors/voice actors who are planning to start your own blogs in 2012, here are some excellent tips on what NOT to do...


(H/t to fellow Scoop.it curator Martin Gysler for yet another excellent find.

 

"Are you thinking of starting a blog in 2012, or making significant changes to your old one?

 

One thing that you should always be 100% clear on is your purpose of writing. Is it to start a personal blog where you don’t really care if you have a total readership of 9 or is it to have a blog that you want to monetize at some point.

 

If you belong to the former camp, then do as you please, and skip this post. If not, read on.

 

1. Making Your Blog All About You

 

Your blog is not an online journal. Although it might feel like the perfect place to let everything out, be careful about what you write. Especially, when you have aims of making money from it.

 

Many people get offended at this advice. They indignantly retort that they are writing for their friends and family only. If that is your intent – and it is perfectly fine – go ahead but keep this in mind it would be fairly hard if not impossible to reach wider audiences with a personal blog..."

Voiceover Marketing 101: What NOT to Share on Twitter or LinkedIn...Smart people do some very dumb things... | Inc | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it

The "take 10 second to think before you post" is a brilliant rule we should all follow as well as it's corollary: "Don't post anything you wouldn't want your grandmother, clients or employees to read and associate with you." Just remember, when it comes to the internet, once you put it out there, it may be out there forever...  

 

(Thanks to fellow Scoop.it curator par excellence, Martin Gysler, for finding this post.)

 

INC: "I really want to tell you about my lingerie ... but I'm not going to.

 

It's true that I've found a certain line of women's underwear that I'm so excited about that, at times, I'm inclined to want to tweet and Facebook about them. But clearly, I don't—because I impose upon myself the common sense "10 second rule."

 

As a business owner as well as an individual who values some boundaries on her privacy, I take 10 seconds to ask myself, Do I really want the whole world to know this about me? Because in all the haste to seem social media savvy, I've seen a lot of smart people do, say and post a lot of things they may come to regret later..."
