    NV becomes the subject of social media envy with her very well thought out (and super relevant) buzz! Makes all wonder who or where is the real you...and at times whether one is for real! ;) Social media presence ideally should be an honest extension of one's personality, making one's profile complete.

    We are multifaceted and multi dimensional beings capable of being so many different personalities.

    Denial, delusion and lies have certainly been facilitated with the virtual world. Perhaps the convenience makes us aware of these ills.and after a certain threshold we self correct?

    Correction is only possible if the awareness persists like water on rock and people understand that the virtual can help in self discovery rather than suppression of facts.

    Nice article. Enjoyed it.

    @Rowan Leigh I truly agree and like your comment ¨I personally love how it removes barriers. But, I also think it erects them and assists in creating an illusion¨ I personally think the best policy is honesty so trying to be as real online as offline would be ideal. However, as humans are humans at the end of the day and their vision of who they want to be and who they are can differ, I find it difficult to believe that our online vs offline personality would be exactly the same. When you remove those barriers you enter a more conmfortable environment where you can truly express yourself freely. This is bound to make a difference.

    ¨Blind people have no need for visual cues but get their impressions elsewhere...and I think it's important to remember this when engaging online.¨ This is an interesting point, in person we react and change course based on our impressions we get from others whereas online we have to consider those impressions before posting. It's a different psychological process thus the communication is different, which is why it's easier to differ online than offline.

    This article seems to come from the standpoint that the offline personality is somehow more "real" than the online behaviour. If you're fake in your daily life, you're probably fake online too. Authenticity is what it is; as someone has already mentioned, personal branding is personality...unfortunately, most people are not "real" in the sense they rarely present their true thoughts and feelings to anybody, including those closest to them. Social media is just a medium to be used to facilitate communication and I personally love how it removes barriers. But, I also think it erects them and assists in creating an illusion. I suppose everything is like that - it can be used for good or bad. I don't need to see body language or have eye contact to have my compassion and empathy stirred, the words will often be enough. I read an interesting article a while back on eye contact, apparently, it's most often "the speaker" who needs it rather than the listener. Blind people have no need for visual cues but get their impressions elsewhere...and I think it's important to remember this when engaging online.

    @Sara Jacobovici Thanks for your kind replies and for your own thoughts. I really liked your statement that you ¨advocate that we use social media as a tool to assist in our goals, not to replace who we are¨ I strongly agree with you on this.

    In response to your curiosity about "Online we manage our own impression and deception to be who we want and express ourselves freely." I used impression and deception as through my research on cyber psychology I found that we all use impression or deception to a certain extent to reach who we want to be as oposed to who we are.

    Your point on ¨One of the disadvantages is that it results in the blurring of our internal/external boundaries; it is not so clear who we are, privately and publicly.¨ is a very interesting one as this starts a whole new topic on it's own. Humans are changing all the time, our personalities change, our maturity levels, our likes and interests, our knowledge, the community we live in, the people we are surrounded by, as all these factors change our personal brands may change. With this our online behaviour and habits may change as well.

    Personal branding is a label for an individual characteristic formerly known as personality. I, for one will not loose my individual identity to a stream of ones and zeros and sincerity is far less work to maintain convincingly. As an artist, I suspect I enjoy a certain degree of latitude on my odd nature, and must admit to exploiting it at times. While it is true that more time exists for contemplation of any statement, I would hope that people do not live a dual persona, for I would like to believe that it is really you I am familiar with and not some electronic puppet. I honestly feel that people are so weary of these buzz words most are just throwing their caution to the wind just to get real... The technology evolves more quickly than biology and we do not need to suffer it's artificiality to use it. we must simply maintain our curiosity and honesty. If we loose each other what has the tech benefitted us?

    Kudos Netta on a fascinating post. You pose many excellent questions, offer astute analysis and share important insights. Bravo!
    A few thoughts:
    1) With live video streaming being the hottest social media trend -- in addition to mobile -- it's really just a matter of time before our social media lives/personas are transformed into an instantaneous interactive visual medium 24/7. But, for now at least, being a good writer definitely has it's digital benefits.
    2) You make a powerful point about how online communications have allowed some people with disabilities to more actively participate in many aspects of life, including teleworking, greater computer accessibility and more powerful communications overall. In the USA, people with disabilities account for 20% of the population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Thus, the online world has literally revolutionized the live of many people in the disability community to become more active participants in society at large.
    3) Online personas can also have their pitfalls, such as inadvertently posting an embarrassing photo that your boss or co-workers may see on social media, or taking stringent stances on controversial social and political issues that one might otherwise choose not to articulate in person. But the fact remains that many people of all generations would still rather be on Facebook than engage in face-to-face interactions -- and this is not necessarily a positive development according to some social scientists. Being online more means being offline less, which can lead to less exercise and fewer outdoor opportunities to enjoy the splendor of nature, for example.
    In addition to the growing trend of live video and going mobile online it will likewise be interesting to observe how the budding trends involving artificial intelligence and virtual reality will alter the online experience. Thank you again, Netta, for this brilliant buzz!

    #13 "Again, it's a matter of integration; in order to feel grounded and stable, we need one core personality which is freely able to express its different parts. We cannot afford to present on-line who we think we would like to be versus who we are". Very-well said dear @Sara Jacobovici
    Sara Jacobovici
    28/03/2017 #13 Sara Jacobovici
    Part 2/2 "Through the use of social media, we can present our ideal selves versus our real selves." Identity has been a challenge from the first moment of human existence. Before computers, before television, before movies and magazines, the question of who we are was still being asked. We are the only self-reflecting species that asks "why". How we have coped with identity issues has always been problematic. Again, it's a matter of integration; in order to feel grounded and stable, we need one core personality which is freely able to express its different parts. We cannot afford to present on-line who we think we would like to be versus who we are. One of the disadvantages is that it results in the blurring of our internal/external boundaries; it is not so clear who we are, privately and publicly.

    "...content is being updated more frequently and in real-time allowing for more authentic content that is closer to your offline persona..." This is a very interesting and valuable observation that with less time gaps, there is less of a gap between our on-line/off-line identities. I imagine this will bring up many challenges.

    "Online we manage our own impression and deception to be who we want and express ourselves freely." I am taken aback by the word deception in your concluding statement. I was hoping you would help me understand how you are using it.

    Wow! Thanks again for being the catalyst of this important discussion.

    Part 1/2 What an interesting and thought provoking article @Netta Virtanen. Thank you for a great read and a dynamic discussion. At the risk of sounding cliché, there are advantages and disadvantages to technology opening a portal into a new world that is virtual and sensory deprived. You have listed both. I am excited about the advantages and very concerned about the risks. Awareness is key, as in all things. If I may, I would like to respond to a few lines from your article.

    "...your verbal identity is very important. Sarcasm, jokes and irony can easily be lost without a voice...." Very powerful line, Netta. Powerful in that it reflects how much of our identity is being redefined. As an integrator, I work hard to reconnect my clients with their first language, the nonverbal language of creativity. a language discarded with the learning of our verbal one. What is happening now is that technological devices are making the need to integrate the nonverbal and verbal obsolete. One voice is being lost and being replaced by a silent virtual one. That is why I so strongly advocate that we use social media as a tool to assist in our goals, not to replace who we are.

    To maintain a personal brand are the kind of things a good mother warns their children they should not do. We should heed guardians who remind us that we must engage due diligence, recognize our naivety in social situations and the cultural factors to take note of. Personal branding is not a white knight however, except for branding experts.

    Personal brand started meatspace where we all live rather than cyberspace. When Lisa Vanderburg recently wrote in a comment to Joyce 🐝 Bowen of a man with an excellent personal brand who had abused her as a young person, she said that he got away with it because no one believed that such a man could do such a thing.

    There is also the vulnerable who can become addicted in their behavior and therefore depend on the web as a means to sustain their identity. When Netta used the following quote we will accept the quote but not it's context :

    "Facets of online communication might allow for specialized social control that are not typically found in traditional means of communication, such as one's ability to revise and contemplate before verbalizing, as well as anonymity and lack of social cues" that is from this link https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3924803/ yet this article is entitled "The Influence of Personality, Parental Behaviors, and Self-Esteem on Internet Addiction: A Study of Chinese College Students".

    We would think that the Dark Web is too dangerous for us but ironically within that resides good people https://www.wired.com/2014/06/the-secret-side-of-the-web-is-home-to-heroes-not-just-crooks/ so if we are parented into personal branding, in that exists new consequences.

    Great Buzz @Netta Virtanen Online allows one to be more open in their expression than if it were to be said face to face. The only differences should be the obstacles being elimated. Like the example of the deaf being able to express without actions. Hence we must Becareful how we portray ourselves online It should be given equal importance. Trying to be two different people will only cause damage in the long run.

    #3 Thanks Ali! Working at beBee and reading my colleagues and business partners buzzes I realized that our online vs offline personalities differ, or perhaps that online it is easier to get to know one another. Especially when different languages, cultures and customs are involved like you mentioned. As social networks advance in features and time spent by user online increases it will be interesting to see cyber personalities and behaviour of the next generation.

    @Netta Virtanen Very good article Netta. I find this to be very true: "Therefore we are different online and offline with the type of content we post and how deep we are willing to share with others. Each person is different and will display a different balance of themselves online and offline."
