The transparency of the (authentic) self has been raising serious issues that point at the fact that digital identity strategy has become essential. The digitalized and networked status, with its implied online audience, and with several features of alter/egos constantly urge user-decisions concerning digital footprints. Within online ecosystems the real self bears special psychological-ontological characteristics where the main rule is “whoever is not available on the internet does not exist”. Users mix conscious decisions with random ones, drifting along the dataflow. Real time answers will hardly make it: the digital environment has been changing rapidly. Social psychology, computer science and business studies research the digital identity construction and the novel features from narcissism to personal branding (among others: Schawbel, 2009; Mehdizadeh, 2010; Veletsianos, 2013; Tamborra, 2014). In the first part of my presentation I will propose a framework for the phenomena of self�determined digital identity. The second part of my paper form groups of trends in digital identity research. In addition, this presentation provides an insight into a research-in�progress on digital identity in the third part via qualitative design and via multi�generation samples. Expected results provide a brief feedback about personal goals, decisions and motivations, and, also, about realized phenomena in this field. Decisions concerning in/visibility, boundaries among public/social connections and intimacy collide with the self who has to redefine itself over and over again in terms of a digital identity in a rapidly changing online environment. Our goal is to highlight present and future phenomena concerning the transparent self designed by digital identity observing decision in online transparency
