    One of the great things about social networking — pulling friends and associates together from all areas of a person’s life — can also be a detriment. My Facebook profile includes everyone from VP’s at my company to fraternity brothers I haven’t seen in nearly 20 years. So needless to say, the conversations I have with my former college pals are not necessarily the conversations that I want to share with my work colleagues. For me, Facebook has a dual purpose of professional networking and personal socializing. It’s easy to see how the two purposes can conflict with each other 🙂

    Hi Mike, thanks for commenting. You’re a great example of how a person’s professional world intersects with personal interactions. As long as we remain aware of how these groups share in the dialogue then I guess that’s half the battle Hopefully not too many frat stories are posted on your FB wall!
