Week 12 identity


Who we are?

In digital media, we can be the other person. We are represent by an IP address on internet. We can be considered as an email address to log in Facebook, twitter. On FaceBook, Twitter, the profile photo makes a little more ‘human’. Compare 5 years ago, when icq is the main stream of instant text messenger, the interface was only a text box. Now the latest icq 7, release in March 2010, had a similar appearance of MSN Messenger.

On Ebay, we are  ‘self brand’ and ‘brand’ by the public. The feedback from other sellers and buyers give the feedback rate to determine you can be trust or not. We can be a trust person by selling items as listed.

On Twitter, we can brand ourselves and see how many people follow our ‘twitt’.  Interesting, in China, many interest users break the state-censor programme to follow a ‘twitt’ from a Japanese porn star, Sora Aoi.


No matter who we are, we need to be repect. Both on real world or digital world.
