dc.description.abstractThe textual capacity of online spaces with the application of a graphics interface enable a wide variety of social contexts for interacting with others and presenting one�s self. As educators teaching, collaborating as well as spending leisure time in online spaces, there are increasing opportunities for overlap between work and social life. Using Goffman�s (1959) theory about the embeddedness of impression management in everyday life, each online context offers a separate space for professionalising the self. This paper introduces an exploratory study seeking to understand how educators manage the advantages and difficulties of self-presentation within diverse social contexts.
