Who Do You Think You Are? Personal Home Pages and Self-Presentation on the World Wide Web.
Dominick, Joseph R.
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v76 n4 p646-58 Win 1999
Analyzes 319 personal home pages. Finds the typical page had a brief biography, a counter or guest book, and links to other pages but did not contain much personal information. Finds that strategies of self-presentation were employed with the same frequency as they were in interpersonal settings, and gender differences in self-presentation were consistent with research findings from social psychology.
