Mixing Pleasure With Business–Social Networking With A Purpose

I had an interesting experience this week. A player I am working with sent me a message on facebook. He wanted me to help him contact a team on his behalf. It was an easy request. After a quick response, I decided to take a moment to check out his page. Wow. What world is this guy living in?

It looked like my guy had quite the summer and it appeared that he has the party lifestyle going—at least that was the story the picks were telling. Lots of beach pics with lots of adult beverages and babes. Not that we are against such things, but if you want to be taken seriously, this is definitely not the impression you want to be presenting to the world.

What to do… How about a few pictures of the guys working out at the gym? Throw in some action shots from past seasons and this year, and try to keep your pictures as current as possible. You could also feature a couple of your team mates and even a couple shots of other players you consider role models. Listing websites that feature your team and league would be a good thing too.

If I am taking a look at your facebook page, or twitter, or any other social network you may use, then who else is? Let all of us get a positive impression of you and your world.
