Online identity crisis

This story was in one of our newspapers last week:

AUSTRALIANS now have so many online identities that we risk a kind of multiple virtual personality disorder, a leading clinical psychologist says. The average Australian has up to 10 virtual identities and more than 40 per cent of us lie about some our personal details, a nationwide survey has found. “We often think about the dangers of going online and interacting with other people, but there’s also a risk of altering your own relationship with yourself,” University of Melbourne’s Andrew Fuller said.

 

I post this for two reasons:

  1. It’s probably not just Aussies who are having this crisis – so beware!
  2. All of my details on Facebook are absolutely TRUE!!!!
