The most important aspect of this in my opinion is privacy, both on and offline. Also not blurring life online with life offline, but this is becoming more prevalent and so therefore, privacy is increasingly an issue and is being blotted out at many stages.

Digital Privacy and Identity is becoming a seriously big issue nowadays and we should pay more attention and increase our awareness on using technology in this era.

In my opinion, we have to protect our data identity at all times, whether online or offline. Let’s say it could be a public property, but it needs to be your private property as well.

For any group, be it learners, employees, or employers, the blending of digital and personal identities will result in people, specifically minority groups, as Professor Hankin says, developing “group membership feelings.” This can be good or bad. It’s helpful to align oneself with like-minded people, but dangerous in that it can cut off discussion so that people just live in their echo-chambers.

For learners, the most important issue of digital identity understanding your public and private identities, as well as being aware of your online, and offline identity.
