Welcome back claire, happy training!
Well observed pippi. Glad someone can see you're competent
Tis funny with the social media thing. I've not been as careful in the past but at the minute I do actually have a 'strategy' which I'm happy with and which works pretty well. Twitter is under my real name and is work related - everything I post is public, I don't follow friends - they can follow me if they like but on the whole I keep it professional and people at work do follow me.
Facebook is private, only family and friends can see and i'm slowly filtering out people from school etc that I haven't spoken to for years. Anyone looking for me will see my name, and maybe the pictures I've had as my profile picture, ut if they're not my friend they won't see anything that I post there.
Forums I keep separate from both. I never use my real name - some of you lot know it and other people I've met in real life but I don't tell anyone new, and try not to link to anything that will directly identify me. I suppose you could do it by cross checking races over the years to see who's entered all of them but you'd have to be determined. I like to keep forums separate from real life as well as from work - my real life friends don't know I'm on here and while my mother follows me on Facebook I'd rather she wasn' reading everything I posted on every forum I'm on!
So I know pictures will get posted round facebook sometimes, but they're associated with my real name not directly linked to my forum account - and I will(a d have) untag myself if I don't like them so they're not linked back to me and don't show up to all my friends.
I know for some people the crossover is more vague, but this works for me for now
Anyway, not sure why I'm explainingall that in detail. Probably trying to avoid going for a run...
