Our Personalities on Social Media

Our social media accounts such as our Facebook profiles convey our personalities accurately.

Researchers believe that the ability to be able to freely express one's personality online contributes to the person's online popularity because it allows the audience to know the person, it satisfies the need to be known by others, and profile viewers feel that they can trust the information they get from social network profiles while instilling confidence in themselves as well.

These traits are tied to an individual's personality that the person almost becomes synonymous with that quality. For example: Einstein = Genius; Machiavelli = Ruthlessness.
