So here we are the ninth and final blog post for BCM112, The person we display ourselves as online isn’t always an accurate illustration of who we are in the flesh, rather us presenting a certain type of aesthetic of one’s self. Take my Facebook and Instagram for example, it doesn’t always display an accurate portrayal of my day to day life, but it does portray a more personally accurate picture of me compared to my Twitter and WordPress. Which consists of a more reserved and type of online persona, because of what I am using it for (University).
You see the stuff I want you to see, and that’s the way this whole online presence thing works. Celebrities do it so well, they do this all the time prime example being Kimmy.K, she has a Kardashian empire to keep up with, sponsorships that she needs to be promoting. And to be fair she is keeping a much more down to earth, low-key online presence, since the Paris robbery. To round it up, we choose our own level of online presence, our own public persona, it is still you just not the whole you.
Startpacks are a big thing this week so here’s mine to wrap up my online persona and my at least my final blog post for BCM112.
