Why do “professionals” insist on contacting me through Facebook?

I use the term loosely, because half the time I wonder how they’ve heard of me in the first place.

Facebook is a social media outlet that I do not take seriously at all. I joke around on it, I write stupid shit on it, and it is not representative of who I am, professionally, at all.

And I don’t want it to be.

I use it to interact with friends and to have fun. Seeing that side of me does nothing to broaden your understanding of me in a working environment.

Maybe I need to get back on LinkedIn. And God, do I hate LinkedIn.
