Managing multiple identities on the web
If you have accounts on multiple social channels, it’s hard to get a consistent username across all networks, especially if you have a common name (like me). It’s also incredibly hard for your friends to keep a track that you are a “gauravgupta” on one network, “guptagaurav” on another and “gauravgupta123″ on some other.
Moreover, some sites like Orkut (and initially Facebook) don’t even have the option of having a sharable profile URL. I had met somebody on a plane few months back and we wanted to connect on Orkut later on – There was no way I could tell him how to reach my profile!
One thing I do know however is that all my friends know my homepage URL (www.gauravgupta.in). To manage this social mess, here’s a simple solution – Create subdomains on your homepage URL, which point to your various social network profiles.
So, for example-
Neat, isn’t it?
Looking forward to your feedback and comments.
