13-I: the Development and Validation of a Scale For Virtual Identity Versus Actual Identity

This research aimed at developing a theory-based scale for virtual identity. Five studies were conducted to examine, refine, and validate the proposed virtual identity scale. We demonstrated that this newly developed scale is a reliable and valid measure that captures the centrality, meaning, affect, and behavior dimensions of virtual identity.
