Stashed in: Introverts!
An interesting read. Did not know Digital Introversion was a real term. I think the core argument is ultimately share whatever you feel is relevant and what you are comfortable sharing.
Personally, I am not shy about sharing ideas and at times opinions online, but I am private about sharing my thoughts and feelings. That's what a phone call is for, or a long email - not a tweet or status update.
I can also understand why having a digital presence is important for companies, but I don't know why it should be important for an individual.
These days it is important to build a personal brand.
Everyone from employers to potential business partners will search for what you've done online.
But what does a personal brand mean?
Sure, they may look at my linkedin etc to figure out where I went to school, and my internships. But why care about twitter when evaluating who I am?
