I don't see this as off-topic, unless all discussions of interacting with colleagues and potential customers and employers are off-topic.

In some businesses, it's de rigeur to be a member of one or another social networking system.

I would want to know what precautions people take when they do join social networking groups online.

Is there any way to keep your personal-social and your business-social presences separate? Without lying on the sign-up forms?
