The aim of our study was to increase understanding of older people’s views on social media’s and identity by asking the question: How do seniors perceive identity on Facebook? Based on a qualitative approach with written interviews conducted by e-mail, we contacted respondents who had and used a Facebook account. In our study we used categories, such as seniors, identity, Facebook and networking to be able to answer our research question. The result of this study is shown as a description of nine respondent’s testimony regarding identity on Facebook. The study shows that it is regarded negatively to be totally anonymous on Facebook. The respondents also testified to being meticulous in selecting what kind of material they publish on Facebook.
