1. Connecting: Introduce yourself and tell me why you want to connect

I am pretty open to new adds. If I am questionable of adding you; I will send a message asking “why are you adding me?”

2. Follow, add, friend:

Adding or Friend: I will add some one after three conversations, if I think I will continue to speak with them at some point.

Follow: I will follow if you haves something interesting to say to me.

3. Privacy, boundaries and safety:

On Facebook: Only my friends can see my profile. I keep my profile in order as if there is something that I would not want one friend to see; then I will not put it up for any of my friends to see. I don’t have different profile access for different friends.

LinkedIn: Open to the public

Twitter: Open to the public

Blog: Open to the public

4. Signal to noise:

Facebook: I do like to be connected to people who send more than one invite, for anything, a week.

Twitter: I do not like to follow someone who produces multiple tweets (3) as a continuation of one message.

5. Personal data and sharing for different media:

Facebook: is purely informal for me; and I only stay networked to people in my peer groups.

LinkedIn: Is professional for me; so I connect for professional, ideological, or academic purposes.
