Creating Identity Through Content

Our views of social media are ever shifting. At times it can seem like the greatest advancement in communication while other days it is a time suck that has made each of us its slave. Somewhere between these two extremes lies our true views on social platforms and forms our grey opinions, laying the foundation for thoughtful assessments of our online identity.

My current view of social media aligns greatly with the views put forward earlier this month by CollegeHumor founder Ricky Van Veen at the annual TEDxWakeForestU Conference. What do you think? Is our online identity created and carefully curated by each of us?

Thanks to Darnisha Bishop for sharing this video with me.
