Abstract [en]

Many studies on childrens and teenagers chat behavior report on the users tendency to present lies on the Internet. Already the pioneering work of Turkle shows that this behavior can contribute to a persons identity development in that sense that it is possible to test different ways of presenting yourself.

This paper presents a qualitative analysis of interviews with 12 young teenag-ers which shows that the kind of net communities where young people gather their friends and communicate in more ways than just chatting allows the user also to present truths which are too embarrassing to present face-to-face.
