How much do you know about your internet identity? Do you do anything specifically to curate it?
I don’t think you can be a creator without being a curator. I curate what I create, but my online identity definitely goes beyond that. There’s what you share as content, and there’s what you share outside of that, unintentionally or intentionally such as your brand, and your data. Some people are very intentional with their brand and put in work to maintain it, but I’m a little bit more laidback.
When I post online under my personal accounts, I try to think of how people see me, and what kind of person I want to be. The things you leave out can be just as telling as the things you keep. For example, do your friends avoid talking about politics on their social media? Is that coming from the privilege of being able to separate yourself from the news in ignorance, or because you’re overwhelmed?
