Hi Rebecca, I recently enrolled in your Iowa workshop in June. Thought I might learn a little more about you. Being myself a socialmediaphobe, I had the opportunity to help a friend launch a business consulting start-up that focuses on social media. In the process, one of the big lessons I learned was that all these fears you mention in your post - being perceived as obnoxious, too self-promoting, stalkerish - all of them WILL come true. Part of the social media experience is stepping on a lot of toes, upsetting a lot of previously established norms, being scoffed at as a 'noob'. Afterwards, you should find the benefits outweighing the costs. Think of the web2.0 landscape as a playground. Try stuff out and don't be too afraid to make mistakes. Good luck
