As sharing has become easier and more immediate it has therefore become reactive and intuitive. Think about it, do you make a conscious decision to share? If it is subconscious then what does this sharing activity say about you? Holly is going to discuss how sharing activity is interlinked with your sense of identity, fitting into three main sharing rationale. She will then go into how different social networking platforms typically fit into these sharing paradyms following by asking what this means for IRL. Sherry Turkle's recent work Alone Together discusses the affect of having a techno-identity is having on our society. Children are growing up through these online personas, with a recorded history on a Timeline... might it be time to let them be Anonymous?
