Social media and investment banking

Can you have a public social media account such as Instagram if you have a career in banking, or any other finance field, and post pictures of your lifestyle, yourself, etc.
Will people in the industry see this as something bad or will it not even matter?
What are your thoughts on how a top finance professional should manage his social media account(s)?

I don't think there is anything wrong with keeping social media accounts, however, I'd considering turning them on private. The last thing you want is for someone to go through your like or old photos and try to turn it against you.
