How do you view yourself online? Originally posted February 20, 2015
Don't worry, this isn't going to be a post about what you can do to protect yourself from predictors or your use of social media. Rather it has been pointed out to me that an entire opinion of who you are based on what you post, Tweet, or share. It's actually quite simple, you may be playing into a persona based on the reaction or interaction you get from those online. Despite thinking you react to others, you just may be playing into the opinion others have of you. Without sarcasm font, us smart asses in the world are rejected by those who apparently think sarcasm is a "form of bullying". Yes, been told this by a person who used to have a huge sense of humor. So how do you view yourself online? Why can't we be who we are in person online? Have we become so enthralled with impressing those "public figures" that our fear of rejection translates into our online behavior?
