Fine-Tuning Your Social Media Profiles

1. Go with the Brill Street approach.  Say you’re the expert even if you’re not or at the risk of seeming plastic to the world around you.  LOTS of companies and people doing this.

The HR Capitalist has a great take on what you should—and should not—be putting into your social media profiles, bios, and “About Me” pages.

It’s easy to end up sounding like a tool if you overdo your personal branding efforts. But you shouldn’t limit yourself either.

The big no-no? Leaving it completely blank.

  • Very interesting post and something I have never actually thought about, as obvious as it may be. I am guilty of often leaving this section blank while I think of a witty, yet professional response that shows both personality and skill. Unfortunately, sometimes those perfect words never come!

    I definitely will be re-visiting my About Me sections and will go for the #2 approach since I wouldn't classify as an expert in anything (yet!) It is so hard to come up with something endearing, but not tool-ish!
