I was driving my 19-year-old daughter to work the other day--I seem to be doing a lot of picking up and dropping off these days--when I saw something that made me laugh out loud. We were driving behind someone in a Pontiac Aztek when I noticed the license plate frame which read: "Treat me like the princess I am." The only thing is, when we went past the car, the driver was a man!
So, it got me thinking about my online presence insocial media channels like LinkedIn, Twitter,Facebook, YouTube, and so on. Do the images published in my online profile(s) accurately portray who I am and what I do? Does the headline or title in my LinkedIn profile give a clear picture of who I am and my capabilities? Is my profile optimized using words that truly reflect the focus of my work or business?
Steven Rosenbaum recently published an article that highlights the fact that we live in a world where it seems that everything we say and do is public. So, it strikes me as being pretty important to pay attention to what our online presence says about us. The question is, Are you a guy driving around in an Aztek looking like a princess?
That's my two cents. What do you think?
