I haven't had a Facebook in probably 7 years. I am just wondering /g/'s opinion on it's relevance in the world of business and networking.

I realize the ethical implications of it's data-mining endeavors, but you can present a reputable identity. This is not only good for keeping up with like-minded individuals, colleagues, professors, etc in your field, but also for presenting yourself to potential mates.

I'm also afraid that a lack of footprint during a background check, such as not having a Facebook for example, could make a potential employer concerned that you may be hiding something.

TL;DR: Is Facebook necessary in helping get girls/jobs/research opportunities/scholarships/etc.

I have neither a Facebook nor a LinkedIn account. It's never mattered. People don't care as long as you aren't weird in person.

To add to my post, I am a socially awkward individual, not very charismatic. Not a great speaker. Another thought was that perhaps a Facebook identity could make up for this as well?

Facebook is good for arranging events and having sex with women you went to high school with. It serves no purpose in the business world.

What about LinkedIn?

It's certainly more reasonable than Facebook for business purposes. As far as keeping up with colleagues, professors, that sort of thing, Facebook could be of use. And as the reply above also stated, it's pretty useful for fornicating with women you went to highschool with.

When I was hired my boss mentioned HR thought it was weird they couldn't find me on facebook (I'm not), but I still got the job.
Just don't act like a sperglord in person.
