Abstract:

Prior research in GDSS has identified two different forms of anonymity: discursive or source anonymity and visual anonymity. Separating their effects on how anonymous individuals perceive themselves to be is a relevant issue that has not been sufficiently explored. This paper explores whether, controlling for source anonymity, visual anonymity has significant effects on how anonymous individuals perceive themselves to be. Additionally, it is suggested that public self-awareness mediates the relationship between visual cues and perception of self-anonymity by individuals. Findings indicate that the relationship between visual cues and perception of self-anonymity is not significant once source anonymity is controlled. Further, findings also suggest that public self-awareness has a strong relationship with perceptions of self-anonymity. Further, other factors such as cognitive effort are found to be related to public self-awareness. The implications of such results are that future studies should focus on perceptions of anonymity as much as on the researchers’ manipulations of anonymity. Further, public self-awareness is strongly related to perceptions of self-anonymity. Public self-awareness is also related to other factors besides visual cues and manipulations of anonymity. For this reason, these other factors such as cognitive effort should be incorporated when studying perceptions of anonymity in groups.
