Most of the time, when someone does or writes something online, they acting differently than the way they would act in person. Being behind a screen makes people feel more protected to do whatever they may like. One may curse or say something nasty that they would never say to someones face, scared to see their reaction. Also, being online makes it easier to hide your identity, so you can do¬†anything you may like to do without anyone knowing it’s you.

When I am online, I try to act as myself as much as possible. Once in a while I may say or do something that is out of my personality, that I usually regret. Because of this, it is important for me to not attach myself to this bad habit. Overall, I try to show the world my true self, even when I’m online.
