Personal online reputation: the development of an approach to investigate how personal reputation is evaluated and managed in online environments.

  The main theme of the paper is the development of a framework to investigate how online information is used in the creation, building, and evaluation of personal reputations. (Here the term “personal reputation” refers to the reputation of private individuals rather than corporate identity and brand.) An overview of prior research into the evaluation of reputation from online sources sets the context for the discussion of possible methods for exploring the role of online information in reputation building. The development of a research approach to be implemented in practice is then presented.
