Talk:Online identity management

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Online identity management is not the common term. Online reputation management is the common vernacular.

- Reputation involves companies & individuals. OIM is specifically about the latter. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:20, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

You ignore common acceptance that Online Reputation Management is the correct term, because OIM is supposedly for individuals only. Then, you redirect Online Reputation Management to Online Identity Management. How does that work? Someone needs to put their ego aside and change this to the correct terminology. - Andy Beal —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:51, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Internet presence management - merge?[edit]

Does anyone think that Internet presence management should get merged into this article? It's a rather small article. Or is this article more about marketing and identity? --Dan LeveilleTALK 19:12, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Merge discussion[edit]

I have done some research into the topic to improve the article on Reputation management. What I have observed is that Wikipedia has 4-5 articles on very similar topics, partially because the definition of these concepts are very fragmented and each term has different subtleties. Wikipedia is not a dictionary, but I do think it's important that we educate readers on the diversity of language and how these words mean different things, hopefully without as much duplication as there is now.

My suggestion is that we consolidate under Reputation management, but include context in that article on the various different acronyms and phrases that are used to define different aspects or approaches. User:King4057 (EthicalWiki) 04:18, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
