Pseudonym Identity online

So here's the thing.I use a pseudonym of EssexDebs when I craft.I use it because there is another artist that has the same name and it's my chosen name gifted by a friend rather than one that has evolved over time.
I'm considering setting up a FB account for EssexDebs as I feel it's important to keep my privacy.
I currently run two e-mail accounts for this purpose is having two FB accounts to extreme ?
Thoughts welcome.

It's not extreme. Privacy is very important and shouldn't be taken lightly.

I think it's fine! I actually have 3 e-mails. 1 is for school-all my university stuff gets sent there, 1 is for buisness-its more formal and I use it to apply to jobs and 1 is just for general use.

I agree that privacy is important; I actually used to have another e-mail account for online correspondance with people from a different website that didn't have an option to PM. That way I could get e-mails from strangers without giving away my entire name and private e-mail.

A personal and public facebook account is a great idea.

It's not extreme at all!!
I have different email & facebook for personal & business, and look at the number of people who are heavily into f'bk games who have set up profiles only for gaming purposes.
So, no, it's not extreme in the slightest, in fact, I think its quite sensible Happy
