Avatar, online identity , web presence …
are all terms that deal with the issue of identity in the digital world.

The management of this area is often referred to as “online identity management“.
The use of the term “online identity” seems to be the most practical, because it usually has a counterpart in the real world. The terms “digital” or “virtual identity” refer often also to identities acting under a pseudonym or anonymously. An “avatar ” is most of the time a graphical representation (real or anonymous).
