Ideally refer to people in a similar field and those who use social media or similar platforms themselves.
Identifying your USPs early on in the process can save further tweaks and overhauls along the way rather than trying to be all things to all people plumped for a single title or role and base your branding around this.
Who are you trying to impress through your personal brand / social media presence.
If it's new career opportunities you're after take a look at employees at companies you'd like to work for and how they present themselves.
