    I'm on LinkedIn but I use it for strictly professional purposes (only co-workers and ex co-workers on it; setting is private), so I won't be posting it here. In a similar vein I use facebook for strictly personal purposes (not a co-worker or person I don't know face-to-face on it; setting is private) and also won't be posting it, here.

    Tying too many online social tools together has inherent security risks (e.g. physical profiling, fiscal profiling, location profiling -- which are precursors to identity theft) associated with it -- to which I have elected not to subject myself. This is also why key information fields about me in each of the aforementioned social tools are also deliberately left blank or populated with erroeous data (i.e. disinformation) ... in addition to using all available security options.

    Just imagine if your FB or LinkedIn accounts are hacked and all of that information is present -- it's an ID thief's wet dream. I'm not paranoid about it, rather, I'm simply prepared, as chance favours the prepared mind.

    Some useful reading:

    Much like Surreal, I have LinkedIn but keep it strictly professional. I'd prefer it not become just another Myspace/Facebook.

    Ditto ^

    ..I crack up when I see people updating statuses on it.

    As already noted, my Linkedin profile is strictly business. Not posting a link for it here. For all the above-referenced reasons.
