I follow a lot of tech geeks on Twitter.  My favorites include Jenna Wortham of the TimesShe is @JennyDeluxe.  

I follow a lot of startup founders ranging from Dennis Crowley of Foursquare @Dens to the folks at Square like @RR Randy Reddig. 

I follow a lot of women in technology, women like Alexandra Wilson.

On Facebook I tend to follow friends in real life and as a 27 year-old woman from Minnesota my feed is dominated right now by friends who are having babies. So my Facebook feed is nothing but homemaking and my Twitter feed is nothing but "Have you heard about this story on Tech Crunch?"  

That is kind of how I like it.  My lives are very much filtered and catered to what is happening both on a personal level and a professional level.
