I am a computer programmer and I see allot of what you are describing in STEM. Basically you work to get money so that you enjoy your life. Why are you getting worked about the name of a product? So what if the new Automatic Systematic System, ASS in short is not a good name ? Why you care ? Take your dollar bill and go home !

Those networking sites like LinkedIn, they are used to get jobs. You go there to advertise yourself, to network looking for better jobs.

If your LI profile says that you are an Employee of such and such firm, then you are expected to represent the firm when asked about it.

Yes, it sounds like you are ready for a different job.....

Because I work with the ASS product and have to explain the name to customers.

Nope, not ready for a different job, not even close. Just new to posting on Twitter and LinkedIn with a personal account showing the company.

Not quite, this is my own personal account created to comment on technologies that I use in my field. We share articles, best practices, design and new product features.

Other personal accounts as examples:

Some do. Other's will post things that clearly connect them to the employer. Or, you post something, then one of your 'friends' re-posts it out to others.

Most people I work with put "System Architect @company" on their profile for Twitter, Linkedin Groups, Google+ etc.
