STEP 1
TIME: 10 MINUTES

Who's represented how and where?

Why do people represent themselves the way they do? What are the pressures they face? The pressure to be cool, or fit in? Which of those pressures do you face? So then, have you ever found yourself trying to change who you were, or be someone different, online?

Think for a few minutes. It might be awkward, but be ready to share a story.
Help your members talk about how they represent themselves offline, and online. Do you have any good stories about how you caught yourself being someone online that you weren’t offline? Try sharing one of your stories to get them to open up and then talk about how they portray themselves online. What are some reasons they changed their personalities online? What happened?

STEP 2
TIME: 10 MINUTES

How to best represent

How should people represent themselves online? Talk about that. What are the various ways that people “represent”? For example, you might want to think about profile images, profile statistics, communities that people are part of, the games they play and the things they say.
Help members make a list of the things they should consider when thinking about the representation they want to have online. How should they be representing? Emphasize the importance of honesty and telling the truth, as well as being consistent.

STEP 3
TIME:

Time to represent

Create a picture (an avatar or real photo) that you can use to represent your "authentic you" online. Save that image in a location you can access later.
One of the core components of an online profile is the profile picture. Some people update their pictures daily. Other people don’t really have the perfect picture. Tell your members to go make a profile picture, which can be a photo or an avatar, and then come back. You’ll showcase those pictures in a few minutes.

When members are back, ask them to show what they created. Why did they choose to represent themselves like that for their profile pic?
