I agree that much of our reputations are based on our online representations, but this adds so much pressure! One can afford a bad first impression or an awkward comment in the real world, because with time and distance, we can prove that we’re better than a poor first impression or that one comment wasn’t a true representation of our thoughts/feelings. People forget about the details and move on. Online though, things are a completely different story. Everything is permanent! We can’t afford to make any single mistakes, post a single bad photo, or get into one overly heated/harsh fight on Facebook. Everything we do is there for the world to see and relive whenever they want!
