Transparency vs Anonymity ... Who Are You Online?

 

Today’s infographic shows these divergent philosophies of Internet culture and, most interestingly, what the average Internet user thinks about the privacy of their information online.

 

**What type of user are you?

 

**Do you prefer anonymity or transparency?

Jan,
This is a terrific summary of the infographic. My feeling is that transparency is not a black and white definition of - disclosing everything or disclosing nothing. There's lots of shades of gray. I like the definition of transparency from "Public Parts" that Jeff Jarvis published last year - it also includes engaging with people around what you disclose. I think there is a place for being anonymous - especially when the information you disclose might put you in physical danger. Have written a lot about transparency - about the practice in my first book and in my second book how to measure it http://www.bethkanter.org/power-light/
