Proof That You Can Be Anyone On The Internet



 

 

 

If there was ever any proof around that you can be whoever you want to be on the internet, this video is it. Not only does it show how you are able to produce completely false identity online, but also so can anyone else and this is what the video is trying to say, be careful who you talk to and trust online.

 

 

This is why this video is more important than amusing;

 



“On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog” is a popular saying used to describe the anonymity of the Internet. It began as the caption of a cartoon by Peter Steiner, published in The New Yorker on July 5, 1993 and is still used today when talking about the issues around online identity.

Now, with all that we do on the web, be it social and professional networking, dating, or buying and selling on auction and classifieds sites, the need to know who we are really dealing with is more important than ever before.

Hopefully this video brings awareness to the increasing need for trust online.
