A fragmented, or distributed self is a term used to describe a self spread across many social, physiological, and physical channels. One aspect of a person may be present in one place, and another aspect elsewhere. One's roles on each site may differ depending on the shape of the site. One may be professional on a networking site and informal on another. Digital space affords the individual multiple identities and containers for those identities.
