More on LinkedIn vs. Facebook

As I asked around on whether I should also maintain a Facebook profile when I’m already on LinkedIn, I received this response from public relations professional Spencer Maus of Lake Effect Communications:I had the same questions and concerns. Being in my 50s, I didn’t want to seem to be a stalker. Then I sat down with a colleague who said Facebook has been a great source of business leads. The key, like LinkedIn, is to build up contacts. I am now on LinkedIn, Plaxo Pulse, Twitter, and Facebook.  I post comments and business stuff on all sites to maximize my exposure and my work. As long as I remain careful (“Remember, Don’t Drink and Type”), it can’t hurt and only can help. Also, I found a number of peers in marketing, PR and tech who are in my age bracket and older. So, why not?-Collin
