Today all of us have an additional side to our personality and that is the online face. With the pervasion of the internet into all the aspects of our life, most of us have an online personality that we have created through the use of online community sites, chat rooms, forums, blogs etc. We have number of outlets online that help us become more expressive than before. We can also get in touch with a number of new people; interact with people from various cultural background, language background and interests. 

The online personality that we create for ourselves should be a powerful and pleasing personality so that we can enjoy our online interactions. There are number of ways by which you can enhance your online presence. Before you can think of enhancing your online presence, you must first make a thorough research online to find the best online community sites that suit your personality. Do not join online community sites without any discretion. Signing up with too many online community sites will only make your online presence weaker. Just pick a few online community sites and concentrate on building your profile in them.

When you go online, do not try to be too secretive about yourself. This does not mean that you will have to throw around your personal information carelessly. You can use a nice picture of yours in the community sites. Never use the picture of someone else. If you do not want to use a picture of yourself, you can choose some nice picture that is a reflection of your personality. People remember pictures more easily than names and words. By using a picture along with your profile, you can create an imposing personality. Never use any picture that is provocative or vulgar in an effort to draw people’s attention; this will only ruin your image.
You can choose a compelling tagline for your profile that will tell the world who you are. Your personal profile is one of the best ways of enhancing your online presence. You can choose to write a few lines carelessly in your profile or spend some time in coming up with an impressive profile that will urge people to get in touch with you. If you happen to be a member of more than one online community site, do not make use of the same profile in all the community sites. If you use the same profile in all the community sites, then it will show your lack of creativity. Not many people like to be in the company of uncreative people. So do not put yourself to that disadvantage. Come up with fresh profile text even if it means writing just a few lines.
Do not wait for people to get in touch with you in the online community site; go in search of them, take part in discussions, invite people for chat and so on. However remember not to force anyone that is not interested in interacting with you.
By keeping in mind all these basic things, you can easily create a powerful and clean online image.
