"We've gone a bit out on a limb and argued that the reason you have an avatar is because an avatar makes you more human than human...Any behavior or appearance you can imagine, you can transform your avatar to embody (Bailenson)."
Lost sense of self
Lack of human interaction
Virtual self: The image/persona/embodied essence of oneself portrayed to the online world
Real self: The in person version of one's physical self, seen to others how they truly are in life.
