I think I am pretty much the same. I do a little self editing on Facebook (not always, but some statuses) because my atheism upsets my parents, and I've got some younger cousins I don't want to explain why I feel that way to. I'm kind of an a**hole, but I am occasionally cognizant of other people. ;)
To be fair, Todash, you keep it pretty light on facebook too. :P
I am always me. But as has been pinted out by other people here, there are slightly different 'me' in different situations. Like if we are in a more serious occasion or one where silliness or more casual behaviour is called for. But this is my favorite me.
I'm just me even if it ticks someone off. I feel like I cant afford to be what someone else wants/needs me to be.I'm just glad to still be here.
That is a very good and thought-provoking post.
I personally think I'm more myself on the Internet that I am in person. As you all know by now, I can come on a little strong so as I age I have tried to tone that down in real life a bit. Heck, even on here I've tried to tone it down a bit. But on my blog I'm all out evil Shasta.
I don't at all feel like it's being dishonest. I really feel like to be in a social society it's better to adapt to situations. My 16-year-old-self would strongly disagree with that but my 16-year-old-self has learned a lot of lessons since then.
I am always me, though slight variations in demeanor do occur depending on the company I'm in. For example, if you're an idiot I can get angry and have trouble hiding the fact that I wouldn't mind elbowing you in the face. In the short time I've been a member of the SKMB it has pretty much supplanted Facebook as my internet hangout place. I find here that I can indulge in intelligent conversations with a cool group of people, discuss my favorite books and movies and such, and even act goofy if the mood so hits me. Facebook is increasingly holding less interest for me, due to the fact that the rise of social media has convinced every single person on the planet that even the most moronic thought that goes through their head needs to be shared and discussed. A quote from Dean Koontz pretty much sums up my feelings about Facebook these days:
“Human beings can always be relied upon to exert, with vigor, their God-given right to be stupid. ”
