What web persona do you project?

We’ve written about – why blog when you can instagram (here). We’ve also written about giving up on social media (here). Well some of you too! But what we have not touched on so far is : what kind of personality do you project when you place online content?


Gotcha stumped? Well, it’s simply really. There was one day when we were in a conversation with old friends over dinner and drinks. And some of them have children in the range from the early teenage years to the brink of adulthood (like about to leave the nest). Yup we’re that old.

We talked about education for the kids, like financial budgeting and investing to help them get along “better” in life etc… And one thing that came up was how younger folks socialize these days. Now this may not well be accurate in all societies that you dear reader hail from. So take this as a social observation of how things could be in our little red dot.

Now we all know that the younglings do use social media more than for entertainment. How about for assessing each others’ social standing? If one had a thousand followers or more on instagram and had posts that generated a large quantum of likes (the mom could not tell how much constitute a lot), then you are accepted into a circle of friends. You’ve gotta project an image of being well liked (ie many followers) and having posts that generate a lot of likes (vindication of your social influence)…

Back in our day we only need to impress the others with the number of marbles we have in our pockets… heheh

So what kind of personality do you have in the web, blogosphere or whatever? Do you project an image of cool, success, content or wealth? Or something else? Tell us!
