Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this thesis we have performed a study involving behavior changes in anonymityonline with different techniques. We have researched anonymous platforms and howthe anonymity changes people’s behavior, for a greater understanding of the field.From our results we were able to conclude that changes of people’s behaviors areeffected by which platform they were using. We categorized the behaviors into threedifferent categories based on the results of a qualitative analysis method of our data.We were able to conclude that one of the most common reasons to use anonymity ishow much more users perceived others to be more open and honest. However, wewere also able to see how anonymity had its drawback in forms of, most commonly,“trolls”. Based on our results we draw the conclusion that the behavior changespeople have are balanced between the positives and the negative behaviors. We alsofind in our study that the positives outweigh the negative.
