Did I mention I have jobby jobs now?
It also means that I legitimately suffer from online multiple personality disorder…I’m Tweeting as myself. I’m Facebooking on behalf of one company. I’m eating donuts for another.
(Okay fine, maybe no one actually pays me to eat donuts. Don’t be a killjoy.)
The fancy term for this is multiple account management and it’s totes confusing. Not only am I confused because I act as different people across multiple social media channels, but I am doubly confused when I have to log in as different people to the same social network. I can barely remember the password to my personal Twitter account let alone the password to someone else’s!
Enter Google Chrome.
What’s that? You’re already using Google Chrome and you don’t see what the fuss is all about?
Well first of all, rude.
And second of all, did you know that you can create different profiles on Google Chrome allowing you to essentially act as completely different people with your own unique passwords and everything? (If you already knew that, why are you reading my blog? Did my mother send you?)
Okay so here’s how ya do it:
- Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar and select Settings.
- In the “Users” section, click Add new user.
- A confirmation dialog appears, choose a picture and enter a name for the new Chrome user.
- Click Create.
- A new window for the user appears, with a picture you’ve chosen for the user in the top corner. Here, you can sign in to Chrome with a Google Account to associate the account with the user. Once signed in, all the bookmarks, apps, extensions, theme, and browser settings for the user will be synced to the account.
Did I blow your mind?
Try it and tell me if it helps you manage your multiple (online) personalities a little better.
