The online barrier between personal and professional identities can be shaky — especially in the world of technology and startups.

Many a community manager’s Twitter feed is taken over with work PR and marketing posts, and many a blogger’s Facebook feed is a string of articles and posts.

But is that a good thing or a bad thing? Given the never-ending revelations about NSA spying and data breaches (cough, cough, Adobe), are we starting to care more about minimizing and protecting our online identities?

Or is this facet of modern life something we are getting used to — something that doesn’t bother us any more than using a fob to enter a building?

Take this survey and let us know how you feel about your job, your online life, and your right to privacy.
