One of the best things to do in Social Media: Use your avatar and your name wisely.
Stick to only one name for all Social Media platforms, people will recognize you better and faster. Talking about being recognized put your face on your avatar, and stick to one single photo to use on them all, preferably a professional shot. Beach shots, you riding your bike or your dog giving you a kiss are not consider professional, unless you are a dog walker, or a professional beach volleyball player. Let people recognize you by what you do best and by your profession.
Having a picture of yourself also helps during networking events, it may be a good idea to print a badge with the same image or logo that you use on Social Media, that can be useful on an event, but you may need to use it all the time, in every situation, even in restaurants; why complicating things, when your face is easy to recognize? And if your Twitter image is an Egg, then you just fall down two notches. Be recognizable! By your accomplishments; your expertise and your knowledge, but also in the flesh.
