difference social media authenticity transparency

Have you ever wondered how much you should share online via social media? Should you share what you ate for lunch? Share what you did last night? What about your kids, dog and professional experiences?

Many people confuse authenticity and transparency when it comes to deciding how transparent to be via the social networks.

You don't need to share the same level of information with everyone you meet online and offline to be authentic.
