There are a couple of Masters theses in what is happening now that the personal and public are running together.  I think it has yet to play out.

On Facebook and MySpace there’s a strange fascination with posting pictures of yourself in — shall we say — various tired and emotional states.  And when prospective employers, clients, friends and lovers are looking you up…  The joke doesn’t always translate.

The public and the private tend to sit comfortably side by side, until such time as they don’t!  When the private is a convenient way to undermine the public.

It seems like a lot of people are posting today what could be tomorrow’s cover of Heat magazine.

I wonder if they can find a professional twist on 'sheep throwing' and 'zombie hugs'?</p> Hi Jon, you’re right of course.

And I agree about Facebook, Myspace etc being non-professional places; however its interesting to watch what happens (all in the spirit of experimentation) when the two collide.</p> "The only way to keep up to speed is to experiment" – totally.
