Netframework and the digitalized-mediatized self

Katalin Feher


Users leave digital footprints behind via online systems. Mediatized self-representations by human interactions and digitalized automatization imply decisions and dilemmas on account of online participation. Chains of decisions and network impact produce online mediatized selves embedded in the NetFrameWork where net is the internet, the frame is the context by it and work implies the flow process of “always on” interactions. Consequences are unpredictable: both former and updated records are available in an infinite digital present. 

The first part of this paper introduces the conceptual approach of the digitalized and mediatized self in NetFrameWork. The second part provides an insight into our research-in-progress of personal/professional digital strategies. The goal of this summary is to present the qualitative results of our research project about digital identity in order to prepare the next research milestone via quantitative method.
