Are we the same person online as we are offline? I would say no, we only show our best side online.
We don’t show our temper tantrums online, or all things that make us tick. We don’t tend to voice our political or religious views unless they are vital to our sense of self, and even then not always. We don’t rock the boat online about anything.
We show our best side and our best side only. I haven’t updated my online photos in quite some time because I’m not thrilled with the way that I look right now. So I am not the same in real life as I am online. Perhaps that is something that should change. Perhaps we should all be who we are in every place and every situation? Or do we not want to rock the boat?
