According to Wikipedia, Persona is defined as:

In the study of communication, persona is a term given to describe the versions of self that all individuals possess. Behaviors are selected according to the desired impression an individual wishes to create when interacting with other people. Therefore, personae presented to other people vary according to the social environment the person is engaged in, in particular the persona presented before others will differ from the persona an individual will present when he/she happens to be alone.

Sometimes you can judge a book by it’s cover.  Have you ever Googled somebody to find that they have a spectrum of information about them? Things such as  job information, reviews from respective customers, friends, or acquaintances, and often times enough information to make an unethical and illegal to chase someone’s identity.  This is all manifested from poor attention to ones persona with online networking solutions.  Negative information found on the internet is harmful in more ways than one can imagine and are mostly linked to the aforementioned Google histories.  Keep your online persona positive and free from minutia.
