Identity, Interpersonal Networking and Enterprise Management

Part of the International Series on Consumer Science book series (ISCS)


Identity refers to the way people position themselves and engage with others. It represents the extent to which people construct their status, image and role in society as well as their relationship with others.1 As a product of socialization, personal identity is socially bestowed, socially sustained and socially transformed, changing as society changes.2 It is, therefore, a complex, ambiguous and shifting concept that is neither constant nor composed of mere histories or pasts.
