Oscar Wilde said: “The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.” That still applies in digital times, as companies work hard for “likes” on Facebook or “re-tweets” on Twitter to build their online presence and community interaction.
As much as Facebook would like us to be our true, open, transparent selves with everyone in our lives, the reality is most people split their identity between work and personal – and that has lead many users to defy Facebook’s policy and set up two accounts. Or, start one on LinkedIn that they rarely visit.
The latest attempt to solve this dilemma comes from Monster.com – yeah, the job search and recruiting site you haven’t heard too much from in 10 years.
