I don’t want to be fake: the importance of authenticity to Online Identity Project participants

· · | Articles | No Comments on I don’t want to be fake: the importance of authenticity to Online Identity Project participants

“I just try to be genuine.”   Through my interviews for the Online Identity Project, I am getting a fascinating insight into what it means for different people to be authentic online: how they perceive their own authenticity, how they act authentic, and whether they think that true authenticity is even possible.   As our offline and online […]

· · · · · · | Photography | No Comments on Building Obsession, Shanghai
