Your Online Identity:
An online identity is a social identity that an Internet user establishes in online communities and websites. The amount of information stored can be as little as your name or pseudonym and email address to a complete bio. You should be aware of what information is stored on sites such as Facebook and the accuracy of that information. Often applications require your bio information to run and you should be aware of this when asked for by third-party applications. Through interaction with other users, an established online identity or an avatar of that person acquires a trust which enables other users to decide if that person is worthy of trust. Would you give your name and email address to a stranger? Food for thought.
