Dissociative identity disorder or split personality disorder is a psychaiatric condition defined as on person having at least two separate personalities that take control of the persons behavior.
You may have created a two headed monster?
I recently asked a real estate professional to join me on FaceBook, he replied that he does not add other Realtors to his Facebook profile but he does have another facebook profile.
I found that interesting and then I found that many people keep both a professional and a personal profile.
I admit, I liked Facebook a lot better when it was just friends and family, but it has been a great resource for networking with other real estate professionals, some clients and many real estate investors.
So if you maintain two identities, one for just friends and the one for just clients; how do you possibly separate the two. Are you pretending to be something your not in your professional profile? How can you possibly separate the two if your friends are also your clients?
I maintain several websites, numerous blogs and dozens of social networking profiles. The last thing I want is to try to remember which ones I can be genuine in and which ones I have to pretend to be someone else.
In this day of technology nearly anyone you meet and intend to do business with will eventually "Google" your name, will they find more than one of you?
Here; let me Google that for you; http://tinyurl.com/ydaslhq
I proudly proclaim my beliefs, my values, my patriotism and sometimes my politics! I am me, not a cleaned up version of me... Just me; and I am proud of who and what I am. If you don't like me then I will not pretend to be someone else to impress you.
If you try to be someone other than who you are, I will probably not be very impressed with either of you!
