My question deals with both Boyd’s and Gillmor’s articles. Boyd states in her article that “profiles provide an opportunity to craft the intended expression through language, imagery and media”, the intended expression being their identity. And Gillmor states that “anonymity is enshrined in our culture” meaning that it is accepted or seen as a norm. Therefore, can someone forge a profile while maintaining their anonymity? Also can anyone actually truly be themselves on social media if they are for example constrained by what others might say?
