No longer content to be members of specialized forums and bulletin boards, users opted instead for global citizenship featuring profile environments –the WWW’s version of a passport, or ID.

I remember a time when the Internet of the ‘90s was filled with various spaces of sociality, catering to specialized categories and celebrities, likes and dislikes, somewhat chaotic and inundated with an overuse of graphics and early animation –it was a space to get lost in.

The classic chatroom of the 1990s was overtaken by other platforms as the WWW moved to newer forms of sociality; namely, the social network.

It becomes blindingly clear who is real and who is not based on various elements of the both the user’s chat handle as well as their vernacular. With the number of bots proliferating in the rooms, there can be no doubt that at some point we failed the Turing Test.

The goal of bots is to promote and link users to certain content. In fact, we failed it long ago: norbertogomezjr (4/4/2012 PM): are you a bot? a_strawberrygirl59214 (4/4/2012 PM): i cant open my cam here yahoo wont allow it cause its adult – but you can access it on my profile norbertogomezjr (4/4/2012 PM): I thought you weren’t a bot? a_strawberrygirl59214 (4/4/2012 PM): i cant open my cam here yahoo wont allow it cause its adult – but you can access it on my profile Last message received on 4/4/2012 at PM [A transcription of a Yahoo!

The architecture of a previous period fostered a certain behavior, in the form of pseudonymity, just as the current social web fosters publicity.

But the differences can still be seen today, as Lanier explains: Participants in Second Life (a virtual online world) are generally not quite as mean to one another as are people posting comments to Slashdot (a popular technology news site) or engaging in edit wars on Wikipedia, even though all allow pseudonyms. This name soon had a history, it represented me as an individual, and it sometimes said more with one word or phrase about my likes and dislikes than any profile could.

We are full-time public relations agents representing ourselves.

Stepping outside the walls of this global village, in search of a return to the individual, nomadic cyber surfers of an earlier networked era seems counter intuitive to the branding and marketing of our digital , but with the eruption of online spaces which facilitate anonymity, or the stranger, and an increase in privacy concerns, it appears that more and more users are experiencing an identity crisis –but which one? Chat, once a thriving enclave, is like a living monument to another era, a ghost town overrun not by chatters per se, but by chatbots.

If their dialog, among other features, is so easy to single out, why bother? It may be that they continue to confuse and generate revenue from the few Yahoo! Another possibility, whether or not based in truth, is that these businesses being promoted no longer exist, yet their hordes of bots, let loose upon Yahoo!

(which in the 2010s seemingly makes no business sense) continue to search for human users to visit their dead. This is the result of the chatroom’s success –a bot-pocalypse, whereby individual humans have been extinguished from a social environment after its popularity.

If a site has been rated 18 you won't be able to access it without giving us proof of age.

Sometimes we might block a site by mistake – if you think we've blocked something unnecessarily, or we've missed an inappropriate website, you can ask us to review the website by getting in touch with customer services.

My opinion, however, is that certain details in the design of the user interface experience of a website are the most important factors.” -Jaron Lanier[5] Although Zuckerbergian philosophy states that all should be shared,[6] anonymous is on the rise.
