    Social buy wow gold networks and online gaming are changing the way Britons view themselves and their place in the world, according to a new government report.

    Chief Scientist Professor Sir John Beddington, who published the study, said identities are likely to become more dynamic and volatile in our increasingly wired society.

    The research found that traditional elements that shape people's identities such as their religion, ethnicity, job and age are becoming less relevant.

    Getting into our heads: Facebook and other social networks are profoundly affecting the ways in which people in the UK see themselves and the world they live in, says a new government report

    And it warns that as these traditional ideas of identity become less meaningful, one potential result could be physical communities becoming less cohesive.

    It also cautions against the increased collection of personal data by the government and the private sector, arguing that work must be done on how individual rights and liberties can be balanced against privacy and security.

    'This Report shows that 'identity' is not a simple notion,' Professor Beddington said. 'People can have many different overlapping identities which are fundamental to their individuality.

    'Identities can exercise a powerful influence on the health and wellbeing of communities, and the degree to which they can build up social capital.

    'There are important implications for a range of policy issues, such as the collection and use of data by government and the private sector, how individual rights and liberties can be balanced against privacy and security, and how inclusive identities can best be promoted.'

    The 'Future Identities' report claims virtually constant access to the internet will drive profound social changes over the next ten years.

    It claims that, particularly among the young, identities are shaped increasingly by their interactions online over social networks and on online role playing games.

    It says policymakers could harness the change in the make up of individuals' identities to bring positive changes or, if they ignore it, it could lead to greater social exclusion.

    'This can be a positive force, exemplified by the solidarity seen in the London 2012 Olympics or a destructive force, for example the 2011 riots,' the report says.

    'Due to the development of smart phones, social networks and the trend towards (greater) connectivity disparate groups can be more easily mobilised where their interests temporarily coincide.'

    Professor Beddington commissioned the study as part of the Government Office for Science's Foresight programme, which analyses emerging trends in science and technology to inform future government policy.

    It took in 20 separate reviews by leading experts which assessed research in computer science, criminology and social sciences.

    A key finding of the report was how 'hyper connectivity' where people are now constantly connected to the internet is dissolving the distinction between our online and real world identities.

    'The internet enables people to connect with others like themselves and discuss ideas as well as promulgate misinformation, which can quickly become widely disseminated,' the report says.

    FACEBOOK 'MAKES YOU FEEL MISERABLE AND JEALOUS'Facebook can make you feel socially isolated and miserable because seeing friends' happy pictures triggers feelings of envy, two studies have found.

    Academics claim one in three people feel worse after visiting the site and that their 'general dissatisfaction' with life had increased.

    German researchers from two universities studied 600 people and found that those who browsed without contributing were more likely to feel bad afterwards.

    Positive images of friends enjoying holidays, commenting on their happy lives or simply posting pet pictures was enough to trigger feelings of jealousy, experts from Berlin's Humboldt University and Darmstadt's Technical University found.

    The Facebook test group said what riled them most were happy holiday snaps of 'Facebook friends' followed by gushing prose of fabulous lives, great jobs and cracking social diaries.

    The academics said people who surfed a lot on such sites were in danger of becoming socially isolated and depressed.

    'Hyper connectivity not only has the potential to increase the pace of social change, but may also make it more volatile. As such, the internet has not produced a new kind of identity.

    'Rather, it has been instrumental in raising awareness that identities are more multiple, culturally contingent and contextual than had previously been understood.'

    The report also warns how many, especially the young, are more willing to place personal information into the public domain, such as on social networks.

    It said the rapid increase in online communications technology has led to a 'cultural shift where many people broadcast their daily lives and experiences, ceding control over some aspects of identity to others with potentially serious consequences for later life.'
