Are You Who You Say You Are?

1 Mar

  My online identity is a good as the real me. I stay true to who am I because I believe people should take me as I am, you either love me or hate me. I am only a member of the well known sites of Facebook and Twitter and for each of those sites I say what’s on my mind. I am a person without a filter; I say whatever to whomever and it doesn’t matter where.

 

On my Facebook I have listed where I go to school, where I work, when I was born, and lots of other information you would be curious to know about me. I rarely post statuses though; I mainly use it to keep in touch with friends and to post pictures of what’s happening in my life. For my Twitter, I don’t have all the information that I have on my Facebook because Twitter to me is less formal. I mostly only use it follow celebrities and my friends who do not have a Facebook. I tweet a lot; sometimes up to 15 times a day or more. If you posted that many statuses on Facebook everyone would think you are annoying but that’s the norm for Twitter.

I do know people who reinvented themselves after high school and made all new Facebooks and things because in college, no one knows who you are. For me, I don’t care enough to do that. I kept my same Facebook (which I had only made during my senior year) and I continued to be who I always was. I had made a twitter awhile ago but I started actively using it in early 2011. I enjoy these social networking sites. They are easy to use and if you really wanted to, you could become anyone you wish to be, which could be scary because you don’t know who you are really talking to.

    Be yourself! To many people on social networking sites are a polished version of what they want you to think they are like. Keep your integrity intact.
