Communication on the internet has evolved over the years and has developed towards the creation of virtual worlds and environments in which everyone can communicate. Typically, people who use the internet to communicate in chats do not use their real name and their photograph but use a nickname that makes them recognize and an avatar that is the often drawn image of an alter ego that represents them.
