Personally, I don't want the two to mix, ever. I don't have a secret different personality here, vs FB, I just see them as two groups of people who I want to interact with in different ways. I do have an issue with posts from FB that get shared here... and now visa versa. I know thats my issue, Im just wondering how many people feel the same as me, vs like the sharing?
I do wish to keep them separate. That's the reason I haven't clicked the "like" button on the Agnostic ad that keeps coming up on my facebook feed. Yes, it's how I found this site, and yes I figured it was okay because the ad showed that 2 of my agnostic friends "like" the agnostic facebook page... But I don't want my name showing above the ad on someone else's feed. Reason solely being because the ad shows it's a "dating" site, even though I'd say most people use it for community mostly.
My fear is that someone connected to my ex would see it and share that I'm here, and it would be another way of him stalking me online, even if it means that he would create a fake account. I'd rather have this be separate from my facebook account, which I can control my privacy to a point.
Can't vote on this as I have pretty much ignored my FB account lately. I got sick of it, tried to remove my presence from it, but gave up after a while. I keep it open just to check in once in a while. I don't overlap because I don't care about FB much at all.
I wanted to mention ... ( haven't read others' answers yet so I maybe repeating)
That I'm using fb less and less. Just a completely separate universe.
I also voted for "a little overlap" as I officially haven't de-closeted to those I know personally. but they guess, without concrete data. Hey, I'm lazy, I only want to deal with the drama I pick.
I love Facebook - reconnects me with old friends from high school and college. But my friends are a mixed lot, and I don't flaunt my atheism there. I don't hid it, either, but I do not have work friends on my account (except one atheist work friend). I don't want work or ex knowing about my 'wild' atheist tendencies while in the bible belt, especially the 'dating' aspect, although I don't know if a date will come of this experience, I do hope 'real' friends do. So keep them separate. As others have said, I'm the same person both places, I just talk about different things. I also belong to a closed facebook group of atheist parents. We keep those discussions separate from regular facebook, as well. Because my existence pisses off some religious people, I just don't want the hassle and want to keep a bit of control over who knows that side of me and who just suspects. I like slamming the door of my closet to keep out nay sayers, and I love being 'out' to like-minded people.
I use them for totally different things. Facebook is for keeping in touch with friends and family I am cut off from at the moment. Plenty of discussion and argument there but more local to the UK. I see this site as a way of making new, more distant friends, and unloading some of my upsets and concerns without burdening friends and family who have enough to cope with already.
Lol, in a perfect world, social media would not exist, and we'd all just use webcams, phones, microphones, and instant messaging in one big internet, instead of this old and overused Facebook nonsense.
I only block my Facebook content to employers and political nutjobs that interpret everything as a threat, or a behavioral red flag, because I see humor in almost every kind of humor, so I don't mind some overlap, and I certainly don't mind people knowing what I think.
I have been very honest about my beliefs for maybe thirteen years, and I have become very, very good at deflecting the thought police on most occasions by holding them responsible for their coercive behavior.
They do not respect one's human right to speak one's mind and they have to understand the very reasonable limit of playing police with others-it's meant to gradually regulate externalizing behavior, it's not meant to make social authoritarianism stronger.
