The Line between Social and Professional Networking in International Business

by admin on

The line between social and professional networking can sometimes get a little blurry.  However, whether you are using Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, if you decide to utilize these popular social networking sites to do professional international business networking, there are some precautions or parameters you should consider.

Have a simple profile.  Don’t make your profile on these sites too personal or detailed but relate them generally to your international business career. This does not mean that you cannot list your personal vitals such as marital status and educational background but keep it professional and pertinent to international business as possible to ensure you are seen in a professional light.

Limit your photos and re-posts. If you are using these sites for professional networking in international business then be sure to keep your posts professional and limit photos and extraneous information. This does not mean that you cannot add some personal posts now and then to keep your posts “real” per se. But if you are using as a international business networking site, you will want to try and keep the majority of the posts professional in nature as well as ensuring you are not posting inappropriate comments or content.

Use Facebook email to build relationships. This feature of Facebook can help you professionally network with friends, coworkers, and international business professionals and build those relationship.  Utilizing Facebook email can help you keep your international business networking email away from your personal email.

Just remember, when using Facebook to increase your international business professional network, everyone can see what you are posting on Facebook. Be professional in the content you are posting and think before you post.  When doing these things, Facebook, or any of these popular social media sites, can be a great tool to help you professionally network in international business.
