How to Balance Your Personal and Professional Lives in Social Media

Does social media make you more comfortable, or less comfortable? For me, it’s both.

As my friend Amber Naslund said when I interviewed her on Twitter, social media enables her to have friends that are not dictated by geography or circumstance. And to me, the ability to find people with whom you have a kinship, regardless of where they live is an extraordinary opportunity.

They say it takes a village to raise a child (or an adult), and the relationships I’ve developed via the social Web are incalculably helpful to me personally and in business. Some of those relationships transcend the Web, as I’ve been fortunate enough to put names to avatars with many of the people I’ve come to know and respect online.

My online community cares about me, supports me, and laughs at my jokes. And that’s a comfort. (and I’m thankful for you every day)

But none of that works until or unless you’re ready to get out of your comfort zone online.

You vs. The Real You

social media personal and professional 300x176 How to Balance Your Personal and Professional Lives in Social MediaThe question I’m most often asked when working with corporations and business owners on social media strategy is “how do I balance my personal and professional life online?”

“Surely, no one wants to know what I’m doing on the weekend.”

Actually, they do. They really do. You’ve probably heard the saying that people don’t hire companies, they hire people. It’s why “chemistry” with the client is so critical in professional services firms. Why would you not want to pre-establish chemistry and commonality with your prospective friends and clients online?

The fact is, your personal and professional lives are colliding and blending like a 99 cent frozen margarita on Cinco de Mayo – and that trend will march onward, not backward.

Social media is rooted culturally in showing your real, whole self. Pondering whether someone wants to read a tweet about your Sunday camping trip is no different than wondering why someone cares what you think about a hotel in Akron, via your TripAdvisor review. But somehow (especially on Twitter) incredibly smart businesspeople clam up like Mob bosses pledging fealty to Omerta.

The fundamental truth is that your personal life is almost undoubtedly more interesting than your business life. Period. And, associating some sort of noteworthy character trait to your personal brand makes you more memorable in social media. The fact that you run a PR firm? Meh. The fact that run a PR firm, but also grow prize-winning roses? I’ll remember that.

Show Me Something

Now, there’s of course a difference between personal and banal. The stock criticism of Twitter being filled with updates on what you had for lunch is overblown, but the underlying principle is not. When tweeting or blogging or status updating about your personal life, it should be something that actually reveals a dimension of your life, or character, or belief system.

“I ate at Subway today” is not valid. “Went to Subway today. Had the veggie sub. On day 23 of vegetarian conversion” is valid.

In a socially connected world, where countless opinions and options are just a finger swipe on a mobile device away, differentiation is harder than ever. You have to build some hooks for yourself than transcend the office. That’s why I make it a point to emphasize that I live in a forest. And review restaurants. And have a bottle opener as a business card.

Your personal life? Your professional life? One and the same. I know that’s often uncomfortable. But it’s the truth.

What’s interesting about you outside the office?

    The balance is a precarious one and sometimes it’s hard to break through the din, to actually connect genuinely with people who share your same goals and values. It is definitely something that happens over time and you do have to continuously put yourself out there to live in a Social Media community.

    I’m so impressed – and a little bit jealous – of the folks in SM who have found a way to share glimpses of their personality while adding value to the overall discussion – at the same time. I follow people on Twitter and read particular blogs b/c I find them (the people and/or their blogs) some combination of smart, thoughtful, witty, articulate, kind, engaging, helpful. The people who do this best do it, probably, without really trying (that’s the part that makes me jealous). Their personality shines through not only in what they share but, more importantly, in how they share it. It’s not easy to do but it always impresses me. Your post reminds me of a scene in Seinfeld when George Costanza told Jerry “Worlds are colliding, Jerry, worlds are colliding!” And for George, it wasn’t a good thing. He was losing “independent George”. For those of us engaging in SM, though, it IS a good thing for our worlds to meld a bit b/c we stand to gain so much more from each other by building stronger relationships. The only caveat, as you point out, is that we need to do it thoughtfully. Thanks for the post, Jay. Great stuff as always.

      Thanks for the kind words Dan. It’s funny, I almost used “World’s Are Colliding” as the title for this post. It’s definitely one of my favorite Seinfeld episodes, and has major applicability to this topic.

      And I agree that you have a lot more to gain than you stand to lose by letting your hair down a bit in social media.

      Thanks as always for the great comment.

    Once upon a time I was a real estate broker (actually still practice on the side) but in the offline sales world you’re taught to be concerned about your image and professionalism. I was paranoid about my outside of work activities, the way I dressed, behaved, talked, lest someone wouldn’t take me seriously. It was maddening.

    When I got into PR and social media consulting I decided to be myself, however that comes across, and drop the act and people really respond to that. I think you find the clients/customers who are like you and they will be drawn to those commonalities in you and you’ll both be happier working with someone like-minded.

    • http://www.convinceandconvert.com/ Jay Baer

      EXACTLY!! Betty, you nailed it. The secret to social media at the personal level (and I guess at the brand level too) is not to convince people to like you. It’s to be yourself, and make sure the people who are into whatever that is, can find you.

      It’s inbound marketing at the personal level.

      And I agree about being happier. I love my clients now, because they all know and appreciate what I do, and what I’m about – and vice versa. We have a personal relationship that I didn’t use to have when I owned an agency that had to maintain an “image”.

    Are we talking personal or personable? I think there’s a difference.

    People can be personable and still professional. I don’t really share personal information on Twitter…meaning about my family or job. I do, however, share information that I think is personable from time-to-time (like being sick or listening to music). I think your example is perfect for how I use Twitter:

    ” ‘I ate at Subway today’ is not valid. ‘Went to Subway today. Had the veggie sub. On day 23 of vegetarian conversion’ is valid.”

    To me the latter is personable. I just can’t bring myself to say “Gee, having a rough day…wish it was over.” Does that really add value? I don’t think so. But if I share that I am sick and taking meds, that gives people insight into why I might not be on the ball that given day.

    Oddly, being personable has gotten me in more trouble in the office than online. Perhaps it’s where I have worked in the past, but being ‘social & personable’ was always seen as disruption and not professional. I guess I had the last laugh because being social with sales, accounting and manufacturing allowed me to know that layoffs were impending & I was able to get a new job before my boss. She was in shock when we was let go…

    What I am wondering is will our social nature finally make it into the organization? Will social media force it?

      Thanks for the thoughtful comment Beth. You’re one of the best in the world at striking this balance, and anyone reading the comments who doesn’t follow Beth should do so as a great example of how to straddle the line.

      Your quote last week at the MarketingProfs Digital Marketing Mixer that we should all experience social media as people first, and marketers second, is apt here. I believe the same applies for the personal to business transformation. I believe companies that hire employees that are social are much more likely to embrace social media and authenticity at the corporate level.

    Being able to show both your business and personal sides can be good – if your personal life sucks you can focus on business and vice-versa. It makes you human. Of course if they both are in the toilet, you might want to clam up! But you won’t catch me whining when I could be wine-ing!

    It’s an ongoing “battle” to balance the personal and professional in the world of Social Media – but that’s really what it’s all about, isn’t it? When you try to be someone or something you’re not – you’ll never see the success and results that simply being yourself can bring. There is no “right” or “wrong” approach – but we tend to pay attention to people when they’re being “real” – not when they’re a “representative” of something bigger – we don’t want to be talked TO, we want people to talk WITH.

      Absolutely Dee. A lot of it is about confidence and positive reinforcement. That’s one of the nice aspects of social media. There’s always a score board. Not that number of Twitter followers (or whatever) is a valid metric per se, but it’s pretty easy to see if you’re building connections effectively across the social Web.

    I have also met lots of interesting people online and then subsequently met them offline. It’s so much easier going into a network event when you already were in conversation online before the event. The other day I was in discussion on twitter with the CEO of a large real estate firm. This is probably not someone I would ever have bumped into offline. It was a good heated discussion but we both obviously enjoyed it because we both did a friday follow with each other!

    You can meet such a range of people from a range of places online. A lot of people you would probably never have met. So I think that has to be a good thing!

    Jay, I think it is somewhat profession dependent. To take an extreme example, should Obama tweet about his personal life? Do you hire a criminal defense lawyer based on what he does in free time? Maybe.

    As a medical professional, I have twitter accounts & blogs for both the optometry office and for personal use. I think of it as tailoring for the audience. Doctors and eye care providers are busy and are interested primarily in vision news and resources. Friends and family are more interested in my kids and hobbies. They over laps a little, and both camps have access to both, but they have the option of opting out of what doesn’t interest them.

    Excellent post — those of us that find value in the social media space have had to answer these questions over and over again. In today’s world where professional and personal blend, it is more about nurturing these relationships than trying to keep them separate. You just never know what is going to resonate with someone — perhaps your shared interest in wine or a favorite book will be the one thing that distinguishes you from the competition.

    As long as you are real in the social space, you will find value in being here. Engage, converse and have fun.

    Hey Jay,

    This is really smart to bring this point up and you’re very astute in pointing out the relevance of why it’s useful to become more memorable.

    I find the ability to connect openly and helpfully with like minds everywhere, regardless of geography is an amazing opportunity as well.

    I work primarily with small local offline business owners.

    As I guide them into the brave (lower cost) new world of internet driven media, it really is tricky getting them to “talk about themselves as people” in the process of showing their wares to the bigger world.

    I think that business communication in the old media always began with “Here’s my store, my hours, and how much my widget costs” because that’s what they figured the people seeking their products and services needed to know in order to buy from them.

    Besides that the cost to say any more than that was prohibitive.

    There’s also the generational divide, distrust and failure from earlier attempts to use technology and, and fear of privacy/technology in general that prevents far too many people from utilizing these cool new tools, and showing themselves as warm breathing beings just like us.

    Today things are clearly different. I for one am glad to see business becoming more people to people. That’s the way it has always worked best anyway.

    The fact that we can have this conversation is pure fact that the lines of communication are wide open and more useful every minute.

    I love the Subway analogy too. Relevant and personal.

    Thanks a lot Jay, this is a great conversation.

    Take care,

    Rick

    Spot on. Exposing your opinions/perspective beyond the obvious professional ones is essential in any crowded marketplace. People want to identify with you, and if you limit yourself to a professional face, you don’t achieve the connection.

    I think the realtor example is a good one…we assume a realtor is only as good as her upline support and resources, until we see the real person behind the position, and can judge for ourselves how this person will conduct herself when the chips are down.

    Of course you risk losing some prospects when you expose yourself, but if you have any value to deliver beyond your credentials you will more than offset losses with gains from increased confidence (in the clients/prospects) as well as higher close rates for leads.

    Absolutely personal and professional life are one and the same, and so yes, it makes total sense to tweet a mix of both. I’ve enjoyed being on Twitter, but haven’t really fallen into a comfortable “groove” with it. This question of balancing professional and personal has been part of that and I find this post very liberating in that regard and very useful.

    In a way, I think we long for the way business used to be. The owner of the corner store was also a neighbor and someone you knew in other roles than as the person behind the counter. Perhaps part of the value of Twitter is to get some of the personal contact back. I know for me that it’s the internet has been a huge boon in finding people who resonate with my work, and yet I’ve missed the person to person interaction I had when my work was all done locally. Social media fills a role for me in feeling a connection with people who are consumers of what I provide.

    Well, this has been thought provoking for me and I think I could ramble on quite a bit longer. Thank you for this inspiring post. Will be following you!

    I too agree that our personal and work lives are blending.

    While that’s not bad, it can sometimes be stressful. It can lead to a feeling of always having to be on your best behavior and never getting a chance to relax. Hopefully we’ll eventually all get used to it!

    (And I too really appreciate my identica/twitter friends. They help me out a lot all day long, not just work wise but friend wise.)

    Good points. I’m still working on sharing info on Social Media. Rather than be boring or share too much info I tend toward sharing none…Now comes the balancing act of what to share and in what context.

    Your personal life? Your professional life? One and the same. I know that’s often uncomfortable. But it’s the truth. http://is.gd/6oHuA

    Social media is a good way to network with other professionals.Actually there's hardly a better and more cost-effective way to do this.Its literally free not counting your ISP fees and any on-the-clock time used.The more you network within communities like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, etc, the more your brand is going to be exposed to others. For the established brand, social networking can help keep that brand fresh in the mind of said communities. But as you said that its more important to handle personal and professional relations…Good article!

    Well Social media allows us to discover,connect and engage with new people of interest.The challenge is to make a connection clearly and effectively without wasting people’s time.Many of us are on both sides of this relationship-sometimes making the connection and sometimes receiving the invitation.So your post is very helpful for people who are involved more in professional life.Ne ways keep sharing.

    It's interesting how hard it is for me to view the distinction between professional and public when it comes to my online stuff. That being said, it's never really bothered me all that much. I think you're right in saying that this is the trend moving forward. I more or less welcome it.

    My real issue is separating the real from the fantastic in my personal life. Once I can do that…the sky's the limit. :)

    For me, it's more about that I really don't CARE that someone ate the veggie delight at Subway. Or that they're in their seat waiting for Movie X to start. I really don't. Nor do I particularly want to share everything I am doing. At best, I post stuff like that after I've done it, especially if I am going out of town.

    Sometimes, there is just this thing called “none of your business” that people have forgotten about.

    Hi Jay,

    Quick copy editing find. Right before “Show Me Something,” your article reads: “The fact that you run a PR firm? Meh. The fact that run a PR firm, but also grow prize-winning roses? I’ll remember that.”

    I think you meant to write “The fact that you run a PR firm…”

    Hope this helps!
    Cheers,
