In reaction to the over-publicity of the self (which one could argue is in itself violent and pornographic in its own self-serving way) as conditioned by the social web, users have flocked to the other extreme of pure anonymity, preferring to live under the more anarchic conditions facilitated by 4chan for the sake of maintaining a level of power and control over their own privacy and identity.For these users 4chan is empowerment; 4chan is honest.
The classic chatroom of the 1990s was overtaken by other platforms as the WWW moved to newer forms of sociality; namely, the social network.The difference might be that on Second Life the pseudonymous personality itself is highly valuable and requires a lot of work to create. A pseudonym especially represents an earlier Internet, where a chat handle was infused with identity. Anonymity existed then, but not as an identity or personality, but as a disguise to be mistrusted and sometimes feared.It is with this standard that I chose talking HEAD™ in the 1990s, with the trademark symbol giving me ownership to my handle when in my favorite social space, L. Anonymous was not respected, more reviled and ignored. The most recent form of pseudonym, which is found in one’s actual name as per social networks, is a strange case.“There are reasonable theories about what brings out the best or worst online behaviors: demographics, economics, child-rearing trends, perhaps even the average time of day of usage could play a role.My opinion, however, is that certain details in the design of the user interface experience of a website are the most important factors.” -Jaron Lanier Although Zuckerbergian philosophy states that all should be shared, anonymous is on the rise.
