Activity 1: Do you have a different personality when you are online? Think about your avatar, your status updates, music you upload, your images and your blog. Would someone who knows you in real life recognize you online? Write a post about your personality online. Why do you think some people exaggerate or change their identity when they are online?
I don't think that I have a different personality online. I try to be myself and I am real with the media. I listen to rap music and pop music I think that it expresses how people feel and it shows that you shouldn't be ashamed of what you really are. I don't think that my avatar really represents who I am, I just like it so I put it. I would say that this blog really tells about me. It tells what I like to do and listen to on a daily basis. I think that if someone I knew went to my blog that they would recognize who I am because of how I put the people I would meet for Challenge 1. Also, I think that the main reason why people change their identity online is because they are insecure about themselves. They are afraid of what people that they don't know will judge them in a negative way. I don't think it is good to be insecure because if you are then you wouldn't want to be yourself and you will be sad all the time because you are hiding who you really are! That's why I think that on the media today a lot of the profiles, blogs, accounts, and etc. are fake!
