I have been the position where some people know me both offline and online. It seems to me that digital professionalism is management speak for something we do as a matter of course.
I have always considered myself an introvert, which may or may not come as a surprise to those of you who only know me on Twitter or through my blog. I thought it was much easier to communicate online than offline. So as the day of my first meeting with Sarah-Louise Quinnell grew closer, I found my stomach growing tighter. We seemed to have a pretty easy rapport on Twitter (I thought so) and I was concerned that when we met it would be like seeing someone for the first time. My brain would refuse to engage with my mouth. So anxious was I that I warned Sarah beforehand that this might be the case. But I was in for a surprise. As it turned out, Sarah claimed that she did not see any difference between my online and offline personality.
