Why we Behave Differently Online

Why we Behave Differently Online

John Suler, 2001 - The Disinhibition Effect

  • We don't know or see the people we are communicating with.
  • They don't know or see us.
  • Communication is instant without rules or accountability.
  • Takes place in what feels like an alternative reality.

Communicating online removes visual cues (i.e. facial expressions), and makes conversations abstract and anchorless.

Side note: Personality traits are accentuated online - people are less constraint by real life social norms and societal expectations.
