Nowadays, a business has to have an online presence on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks in order to stay relevant to younger consumers. On Maryland
site called Loveawake, a blogger Jed Mellick states that you may have to “become fluent and open to all new technologies” if you’re still in the dating game — if a guy you like tweets and you don’t, you may be missing opportunities to connect.

Do you maintain identities at all the major sites — even if you don’t like some of them — just so that you don’t miss the opportunity to find the right man or woman? Do you treat yourself like a “brand” in the dating world?

It may be a waste of your energies to spread yourself too thin, especially if you’re not being true to yourself. If you live on Facebook and a guy you flirt with is a hardcore MySpace user, do these preferences say something about your potential incompatibility as a couple? Or do you limit your possibilities by making assumptions about somebody based on their social networking habits?

Even offline, this question is relevant. Mellick gives the example of a guy who responds to every voicemail with a text. If you depend on voice contact to feel valued — or if you think it’s just plain rude to use a different communication tool to respond to someone — then the guy’s habit may be a dealbreaker. Otherwise, you either learn to live with it and accept that that’s how he does things, or you try to change him. (Good luck with that!)

Sometimes maintaining your “brand” means not diluting it by trying to be all things to all people. If you think Twitter is stupid even after trying it for a few weeks, it seems pointless to send out tweets just in case you might meet somebody. On the other hand — and to stretch the business metaphor — if you really want to grab a client, you may have to meet them on their turf. So if a guy you’re crushing on lives and breathes by twittering, it could make the difference if you interact with him via his chosen tool.

Keep in mind that communication over each form of media has its own art to it. A status update is not a tweet is not a text message, even though they’re all short. If you find you come off sounding “wrong” in your efforts to court or attract someone, bone up on your skills. And if a specific technology just eludes you no matter what, just pick up the phone. Voice contact is just about the only thing we have in common, and there’s a short learning curve.
