Title Identity and integrity in Social media - Why I can´t commit suicide online
Author(s) Kourmouli, Suzanna
Date 2010
English abstract
We are currently in a learning process to understand new social structure of the contemporary society.  We have to see ourselves as a social collective, as we together learn about the new medium and its consequences. The new possibilities have provided us with a freedom and at the same time restraints. Freedom of the free word and that we can connect globally, restraints from  the urge of always being connected and get acknowledgement to feed our own identity and self. As the need of being acknowledged has increased, our own integrity and holding on to our own  set of principles have decreased.     The aim of this thesis is to investigate to what extent social media has come to affect the sense of identity and integrity, and finding out where the limit between what is considered to beand to be public is, as the virtual world has been integrated with the traditional society.
