From the Publisher:
Social networks often blur the boundary between offline and online relationships. These popular systems work to bring people together in an online environment, but participation in them can dislocate users from other relationships. Online behavior can create offline issues.||Angela Thomas-Jones begins by examining the creation of a virtual identity in online networks such as Facebook and Myspace. She subsequently considers how the social self is intrinsic to how social, cultural, and professional relationships are discovered, created, and maintained online, then explores the popular criticisms of social networking, such as employee time-wasting, bullying, stalking, the alleged links between social networks and suicide, and the decline of a user?s public image. She contextualizes the dissonance between the virtual and non-virtual selves, and the offline problems that can arise when the online identity encroaches on the ?real? identity and concludes by addressing the process of becoming ?web dead,? exploring how users may remove their identity, with finality, from social networks and the entire web.
