Take care when mixing work and private life

Overview

I have noticed lately, especially in the context of state and parliamentary elections but also at the G20 summit in Hamburg, how much statements in social networks can change my image of people with whom I personally have a professional connection.

This impression is both positive and negative. And other people are certainly no different with me, because I can not and will not keep my opinion in times of political change.

How to deal with political expressions in social media?

Overview

Especially in my Facebook environment there has recently been a growing number of personal expressions: several more or less publicly conducted party debates and, in the course of recent events, of course an infinite number of political discussions: quite a few people use the social media in a targeted way; Approaching unpleasant developments is simply a question of conscience.

Yet, of course, there are many others who are more likely or unwilling to represent their political opinions. For example, because they ask themselves the question: are not their own political views perhaps strange for some others? And is that detrimental to the job?

Professional, Political, Private - the roles are blurred

Overview

And here, as with unpleasant private statements, it can quickly lead to unsightly intermingling between the professional image one would like to give for one's job and the public or private opinion expressed.

We can not forget that many people use their business networks also for private contacts: they find old school and study friends again and even add saufkumpans to their list of friends. Even with embarrassing photos, many are obviously not aware that this could also be seen by bosses and colleagues. And the same is true of their political opinions.

The result: the boundaries between professional, political and private roles are blurring more and more, and often they can not be separated. After all, you also want to present yourself as a whole person for personal business success.

Different roles with negative consequences

Overview

But mixing the different roles can have a negative impact on professional online networking. On the one hand, it can affect the temporal efficiency of networking. In addition, the publication of private or political information in a professional environment could have a negative impact on the integrity of the person concerned.

Many experts recommend, therefore, to separate business and private contacts strictly within the professional online networking - just like outside the Internet. After all, sensitive information, for example for the circle of friends, has not lost anything in everyday business. Rather, you can negatively impact your professional reputation.

Humans - but right!

Overview

Personally, I see this a little more differentiated: Certainly it is important to separate the different roles and especially in professional dealings to keep certain limits. However, I have also the experience that "Menscheln" is just as important in the business: For only who also shows something of his personality, also acts sympathetic - and this is important not only for the private contacts but also the professional life.

Nevertheless, one can not exaggerate this: With many inquiries, which I get in social networks, I lack a little the structure and the clear objective. And often I ask myself then: What do they really want? Exactly the right mixture comes just on.

7 Tips for the right approach in social networks

Overview

But how does it make it better, how do you use the different roles to be perceived as a competent person in the social media? 7 tips for proper social media communication.

  1. Use an online network with clear business focus to ensure that business is not mixed with private contacts.
  2. Only use private social network connections if you are in contact with the relevant persons outside of the business world.

  4. Therefore, regularly check your online profiles for a professional appearance.
