A Comment On: "Why Good Judgement is the Ultimate Social Media Skill"

One approach, the approach you advocate here, is keep your personal stuff personal - don't deluge us with TMI, rants, etc. Good judgment means stopping before you post. 

Another approach, which I have come to believe in and advocate over time, is to be yourself at all times. So I do get personal, political, etc. This is not the opposite of the approach you advocate but rather a different path. Good judgment here is deciding what to say, how to say it, in what context, how often. 

 How do you decide which approach is right? How do you develop good judgment? For me it is a combination of trial and error, instinct, observation, imitation (yes!), reading, and feedback.
