Impression Management

I was reading this post about social networking via internet sites like Facebook and Myspace and it grabbed my attention because I had recently been discussing the topic with friends. Karen Sterneihmer, the author of the blog discussed these sites break down impression management by allowing for private information to become public. I think these sites tend to help impression management though. Unlike ever before people are allowed to make an image of themselves (that might not be very accurate) and present that to a wide population. Its crazy the amount of people on these sites, and they see what you want them to see.

  1. I’m not sure, what do you mean by image that may not be very accurate? I wasn’t sure on that part.
