An e-dentity is the persona that users of LiveJournal, IRC and other mass-communication Internets tools present to others. Because most everyone on the Internets are anthropophobic, basement-dwelling nerds, their e-dentities always portray them as being cooler than they are IRL. Thus, while a pre-teen fangirl may be timid and acne-riddled in the real world, on the Internets she can craft an e-dentity for herself which portrays her as a beautiful, sexually uninhibited popular kid.

Building a good e-dentity is the first step to becoming e-famous; individuals with particularly interesting or well-crafted e-dentities tend to become Internet celebrities.

If you are not careful, someone can steal your e-dentity.
