Personal: Wine, Movies, Food, Mountains and Outdoors (mostly on weekends).
3. Social Media
I am an avid user and relatively high-volume publisher (including blog). To make that activity meaningful to me and to my connections, here is the approach I take.
Twitter – I occasionally publish automated posts early morning (time zones of interest: Brazil, East Coast) and engage ad hoc during the day as thoughts and discussions emerge. I take part in a few Twitter chats during the week. I occasionally chronicle personal life. I check for @ mentions and DMs several times a day. Follow-back policy: If you have a face and real name and we interact in Twitter, I will follow/follow-back. If you decide to follow me based on lists or my previous content, please send me brief @ message saying why/how you found me.

Facebook – I reserve Facebook to interact with people who are friends in real life (family, personal friends and select colleagues/ex-classmates). Most of my posts are personal in nature (i.e. I rarely post on business there). I check-in several times, often react to posts by others and post a couple of times a day. Most of my posts on Facebook are Public, so if we are not friends but you are interested, you can “follow” me.
LinkedIn – I am liberal connecting with people I’ve worked with. Expect to get an invitation from me if we are talking in a business context and, of course, feel free to ignore – I do understand people have different practices. The fact that I connect with someone doesn’t necessarily mean I endorse that person professionally. I post to LinkedIn updates on business subjects once or twice a day. Unless it is obvious, when you send me an invitation to connect, tell me why we should connect.
Unless otherwise indicated, I wrote the content in this site and everything I publish under my name. The posts represent my views and opinions when I wrote it. I often change my mind and learn new things, so I might think differently now. There is some leak of content between my personal and professional activities and I try to keep them aligned but my blog posts don’t necessarily represent the views and opinions of my past, present or future employers. Quote and use content if you find anything useful, but please attribute and link back.
