Electronic information about the individual is derived from what we say about ourselves, shaped by commentary from others and extended through electronic exchanges with both human and computer based intelligent agents.
Digital Identity and Social Media will examine the impact of social media and distributed social spaces on our contemporary understandings of digital identity. This book will benefit researchers, practitioners, the wider educational community across all sectors, educational technologists, and individuals who are interested in how social media and emerging technologies will impact formal education and the social implications that surround the reformulation and fluidity of virtual communities. In addition, professionals and researchers working in the field of information and communication technologies and knowledge management in various disciplines will find this title to be an invaluable resource.

Professionals in instructional technology explore the digital identity or virtual persona that is the accumulated information that people provide about themselves online, that others attribute to them, and that are a result of their transactions with computers. They look in particular at how the process of creating and being a digital person impacts education. Among their topics are agency and identity in social media, managing social reputation in Twitter, performing the discourse of sexuality online, a sociocultural perspective on negotiating digital identities in a community of learners, and identity and the online media fan community.
