Anonymous Account Packaging

Packages are a funny thing. We enjoy packages and how shiny they are, and anyone who says otherwise is lying to themselves about how special they are.

The package that we bring online is powerful. We are putting ourselves in a box/avatar and saying “this is me.” We might think that, but it’s our presentation of us, not us. However, on a long enough timeline, anyone can learn a great deal about us by our words and actions. Comments, likes, follows, etc tell a story.

An anonymous account, of course, is different. Not “this is me”, but “this is like me.” It’s an attempt to hide.

Either way, we package ourselves to the best of our ability. One problem though: our packaging loses it’s shiny color and becomes transparent through action and time.

Online and offline are blending. I’ll tackle that another time.

PS- thank you for reading my posts. I see the traffic, and I take it seriously. All comments welcome on twitter or here.
