Socialt konstruerad jaguppfattning i en virtuell värld (Swedish)
Individual and collective influences operate on construction of social self. There are also significant dialectic contradictions at work between constructing and experiencing of social self, be it by individual or collective influences. The human species is able to combine different but related processes for social and instrumental interaction by means of individual input to collective activity. It is, however, a bit of a mystery how the balancing process between activity, consciousness and personality materializes in ICT-contexts, by means of social support and in the shape of virtual agency. This study suggests a way of dealing with the features of collective virtual personality.
