What Does Your Facebook Profile Say About You? – The Big Shift – HarvardBusiness.org

Professionals on Facebook … huh? Of course!  And should the professional have a mix of personal and professional info? Perhaps (says this article) and “of course” (I say). The following piece supports this proposition.

Why does it make sense to reveal our personal selves to social media sites? It may be that boundary breakers posting a mix of personal and professional information online are making a connection between what they share of themselves and their effectiveness as managers. Sharing personal information further humanizes people whose roles may otherwise make them seem remote or inaccessible. This effect extends beyond senior managers to peer relationships deeper in the organization. Seeing a more rounded person can’t help but extend and develop professional relationships, furthering the trust that’s crucial to collaborative knowledge creation–the lifeblood of innovation.
