Well, there are some clear benefits to spending time on all those websites that make up your online presence — but there are also plenty of drawbacks. It’s worth taking a look at the reasons you should care about creating social networking profiles and updating them, as well as considering the negative aspects of dealing with all of those sites.

Lifehack gives you several reasons to work on your online presence and three reasons to forget out it.

Are you paying attention to how you are perceived online?

    I’ve been thinking more and more about this. A smaller percentage of the time, I think about closing down my cyber life altogether – but more frequently I feel the desire to expand my presence and manage it better. Although many who know me from the blogs also know my MySpace page – but my MySpace friends (not affiliated with any blogs) know nothing of my blog. I’ve been thinking about “coming out” (in the cybersense) to everyone but that would entail deleting or password protecting some of my blog entries. I’m toying with getting a Facebook page, but MySpace, Twitter, Heartbreaktown and my regular emails take up a lot of time already. Sheesh. This is hard.

    It’s interesting for me to see how other people “cyber-up”. I like what you mention here about how your MySpace friends don’t know about your blog, and it seems like you are sort of cherishing that division of worlds right now. I think that’s true for a lot of people. It’s like there’s a gap you have to jump over to become completely public, and there’s no going back.

    I like the idea of private blogs, and my solution is to run one on a server at home on a local network so that NO ONE else can get in. Now, it’s just getting the time to do that…
