The Internet Is Redefining Human Identity In The UK

NRM: "Social networks, games, and internet hyperconnectivity is changing notions of identity in the UK, according to a report from the British government's chief scientist.

The report, entitled "Future Identities," published by Prof Sir John Beddington, shows that internet use (termed "hyperconnectivity") is changing Britons' view of who they are and their place in the world. As more of the multicultural population share more personal data publicly online, policy makers need to keep in mind these changing trends of identity over the next decade." (Internet, Web)
