Are you really who you say you are?
Creating and maintaining an online identity
Know your friends, as they could be enemies
An online persona is a social identity that a user establishes in online communities. It is an actively constructed presentation of oneself. "Jennifer the ditsy grocery cashier" online could very well be "Mark the deadly rapist" in real life. When planning on taking your frienship with another user beyond the means of online interaction, be sure you know who you are truly meeting up with.
