It is your personal responsibility to manage your online reputation. See what’s out there. Don’t like what you see? Create a Social Media Bio. You can use a free blogging service like Blogger or WordPress to get the hang of what is possible. That is a great first step in managing your online reputation.

  1. Hi Adrianne,

    I totally agree your post : every black woman should master her digital identity and be sure that the information related to her name match with her expectations. Below some comments to complete your post

    Why do I create a social media page?

    First,I wanted to differenciate myself from other people with the same name, more and more numerous to have a web presence. On the other hand I wanted to provide a clear vision on who I am and what I do. When I google my name once, I found that the first link was an erotic poem wrote by another girl named 'Sandrine Joseph'. If I'm involved in contemporary art promotion I don't write such poems. Then, I decided that my digital identity management was a priority.

    How did I manage to write my bio?

    Writing a good bio is a very difficult and interesting exercise : the basis is your CV, the detailed approach of your experience. A bio is a good story telling. You have to promote yourself by highlighting your talents, your success. The bio, is the way you introduce yourself to a recruiter, to a client, to a business partner. In fact, it is your elevator pitch on your achievements, expectations. Be sincere, pragmatic, be yourself.

    Why did Adrianne recommends Blogger or WordPress to Create a Social Media Bio?

    WordPress and Blogger are blog tools. Easy to custumize, and the most important, they are the best tools to be on the top of the pages in search engines as google and search people engine such as pipl.com or 123people.com.

    About the design?
    It depends on you, and who you are. I decided to make this page as clear as possible because my blogs are like in the state of the art on webdesign : http://www.arts-and-talents.com, http://www.poto-mitan.com. I don't feel like it was useful to invest time in design for my social media page. Maybe I'll change my mind later on. Who knows!

    Don't hesitate anymore, create a social media page and register yourself into the most famous social networks as LinkedIn, be in the relevant places : where your clients, recruiters might looking for you.

    From Paris,
    Sandrine Joseph

  3. Sandrine,

    thanks for this detailed response. I think that my social media bio will evolve as I evolve. I will be more discerning about which informatiom I include. For example I am considering removing my social networks information because the number of social networks to which I belong keeps growing!
