Why 2 different accounts on Social Media?



With the launch of the radio show I chose to set up a Facebook Page, a Twitter account and a Google + page for the show... new ones.

Since the launch of those accounts I have been asked by multiple people "Why 2 accounts, why not just use your personal accounts?"

Well... I don't really know... But here's my reasoning:

I think that there are people who might have an interest in the show but don't give a rat's ass about the screwy personal stuff I like to post and discuss on Social Media?!?!? No? Thoughts?

Plus I really hope that eventually there will be A LOT of Social media interaction going during the show and it might be annoying to people I am personally friends with on Social Media that don't want in on the conversation??!? No?

Does that make sense? Honestly, I want to know what you think?

  1. I totally agree. I have annoyed a lot of people promoting so I created another page.

  2. Just as you shouldn't mix your personal checking account with your business activity neither should you try to mix a personal social site with your business needs. It's ALWAYS best to keep business activity of any kind separate from personal activity. So you've made the right choice and it makes it better for both sites and the people you share with on them.

  3. Being a family man like yourself, I would want to keep the two separate "personas" as well. With the show you'll be adding more "friends" and you may not want all of those "friends" to know all the details about your family life that you regularly post. Sure you can group and separate the friends, but it's tiresome on anything other than Google +

  4. From my marketing background you are trying to brand the show, not yourself..so what you did was the best thing to do. Obvisously you will use your own page to promote the show which is fine but it is a totally different brand...

  5. Cody,

    I have found that having two different accounts, one personal and one professional is difficult. With a professional account on Facebook, I rarely made updates and sent information through it. I chose to keep one account and post both types of information. I keep a lot of friends both personal and professional and if you don't like my personal post, you are always free to unfriend me.

  6. I have three accounts on Facebook and Twitter, two blogs, but only on G+ account. When it came along I figured the only people adding me would know about all my sides plus I can group easier there. I know a lot of people on my personal account couldn't care about my photos or about my gluten free recipes and they certainly don't want to hear about me soaking fabric in dye. If you want to follow all three great, if not pick the one that works best for you. :)

  7. Thanks for the input everyone...

    Kurt, I know you are the only one that kinda went the other direction... but I see your point as well. My question for you would be are you willing to lose a professional connection because they didn't want to have all of your personal stuff in their facebook newsfeed?

    I at this point am not.
