We’re a New York-based group of personal branding and digital identity enthusiasts (yes, really) and we KNOW there are more of you out there.
We’re intrigued by the evolving concept of “identity” and the fact that more and more components of our individual identities are shifting online. Social networks now represent more than second lives; they are the second halves of our selves, and increasingly taking the place of face-to-face interviews when recruiters, admissions officers, and others in “gatekeeper” roles want to learn more about us. Social media is demanding our attention; the information you share online, content you post, stances you take, etc. can impact you positively or negatively – we work to see the former!
We’ll be hosting events to discuss a range of online identity topics, from the nuanced and complex (What is “identity” in a digital world? What does it mean to “sell yourself” now that selling is increasingly taking place in digital media?) to the lighthearted (digital identity disasters like poor old Manti Te’o).
We’ve started this group in the hopes of fostering thoughtful conversation on this topic and related ones so that our conversations/debates might benefits from new arguments and perspectives. Hope to see you around!
