CIL Crafting an Online Persona: Defining who you are, in an anonymous, online world
JP (Virtual Service Librarian...wow same title as me!!! @ New Jesey Public Library) and Craig
Craig Anderson (in the hat)
trying to get libs @ his lib to engage in fb etc...big quesiton “so anyone can see this?”...fear!!!
afraid of embarssing FB photo / video!!!
slightly diff person/faces depending on audience
(Billy Joel quote...on slide...)
diff filters depending who you are with
diff on fb/twitter/blog...you can be the same person, but filtered
eg “Librarian JP” (his FB handle)...self-branded, not secret identify...another eg = The Annoyed Librarian (that is a secret identify)...
www.allfacebook.com/2009/02/facebook-privacy/ 10 privacy settings all FB users should know (use for my FB101 class!!!...check it out first)...you can control how you show to diff peeps...
another good article Meredith F “your vitual brand”...find it and read / link
out: the gaming in schools and libraries blog
need a clear vision of what you want your brand to say
eg use of logo on all soc media presences (make sure our new logo gets on all places!!!)
as you build your virtual persona, think about how what you post fits with your “brand”
building a personal brand
http://failbooking.com “too funny to unfriend”
egs of where peeps didn't use privacy settings!!!! Hilarious!!!
JP...role models...eg. Tiger...make sure your behaviour fits your brand...
part of responsible citizenship is showing up...being where the peeps are...you NEED to be out there...um, yeah...amen!
“technical subversion”...just do it! Ask for forgiveness, not permission idea...
build your institution values in to how you present yourself personally and professionally online
eg. email sig: with your FB etc...fab...me too!!!
resistence to new...was objection to having telephone at the ref desk...
Beyond privacy settings...
always think about your behaviour / what you're doing online
your online presence shouldn't be taken lightly
digital citizenship v2
you need to show up, and have conversations about how to be responsible
libraryguy on twitter
pres will be on slideshare (Libraryguy)...link to it
think about how you can be on the social web professionally...
institutinoal personal vs personal persona
article re “should you add your boss on FB?”...
you can block your photos from groups of peeps...good idea
interesting balancing act...esp with potential employers googling you
can use diff signatures for diff email msgs...
you are also who you know / not just yourself...people will also check out your connections...need also to consider your connections...
very 1984...big brother...your online stuff is going to haunt you for a loooong time
good idea to set up an “ego feed” on yourself!!!! (google feed on your institution / yourself...TODO: do it on myself)
“mutually ensured embarassment!!!”
everything jp has done (job-wise) in the past year has been as a result of social media...
