In this talk, I would like to present some clinical material regarding Jung's idea of the persona, 'the social self', focusing in particular on the use of social media, and what Psychoanalyst Ron Britton terms the "as if personality". The persona was the name given to the mask in Greek drama, worn with the aim of heightening theatrical truth and enabling the suspension of disbelief. Using the mask as metaphor, I would like to explore some clinical material from those patients who struggle with feelings of suspension, where life is lived in the persona, via social networking sites.
