    Nice points, having reputable profiles on Facebook, linkedin is very important now a days. Many employers now use LinkedIn to find potential employee for their business. I think not everyone like to make their blog but at least you can create a professional and impressive FB and LinkedIn profile.

    Hey Alvina,

    It’s very important to separate social media sites and personal blogs from your profession. You gave some great tips on how to remain professional and establish yourself as an expert through sites like LinkedIn. Creating an online presence that impresses is one of my first priorities, thanks for sharing.

      A personal profile and a social one can’t hurt…

    Well, I run a security blog where myself is a Software Engineer specialized in IT security. I had a friend who runs a games development blog while he is a games designer. I agree that a blog can build a person’s profile today. We have to take it seriously so that our reputation will not spoil due to improper writing or a blog which has not been update for months.

    Linkedin is the most favorite site for employers and you can easily make your reputable profile on it. But for Facebook, it is somewhat difficult. As a person you can’t resist yourself to post some funny updates on Facebook which is not good for your reputation sometimes. So concentrating more on Linkedin can give you better results. :-)

      Why not just make the funny stuff private?

    Hi Alvina,

    Your points are very valid. The internet has brought a whole new world to us. I’ve really been relutant about using the social networks. Though I have a facebook twitter account I rarely use them. But after much thought and seeing that the social networking sites are truly the go thing right now, I’ve recently joined Google+ and LinkedIn. Despite my tight schedule I’m thinking of spending more time on them in the days to come.

    May be I am wrong, but I think that I would like my future employer to know my private life which I have on Facebook. I can say that in my professional life I am very strict and demanding and in reallity I am calm and peaceful and I think it can influence my general professional image.

    The things that we post on Facebook and on the Internet in general are our responsibility. I don’t think we should be posting anything, pictures or messages, that we are not going to be proud if some stranger sees it. If we can’t help it, then there are always restrictions we can do to set it in a way we can choose just who can view them. Then again, a lot of people are neglecting this.

    You are on point with this post. With the way things are today you can bet that they will check out your social profiles as well as your references.
