Two Profiles or One?

Many people keep two or more profiles on social media for different purposes, while other folks stick with using one profile for everything. This past week, I posted a Twitter poll to see what our #DIGME406 group had to say. The results of that poll are here:

Twitter Poll – One or Multiple Profiles on Twitter?

Six out of ten people said they would use multiple profiles and only four said they would use a single profile for everything.I posed the question because several members of my #DIGME406 team asked if they should make separate profiles for personal use and for school use. I don’t think there is a right and wrong answer to the question. I think it depends on the person and their goals for using social media.

To me, this is a question of establishing a digital identity.
