Abstract

Today's society is being caught in a whirlpool of change that is not behind the Industrial Revolution, the Reformation and so on. Technological determinism is the most general perspective that explains information society. It is the belief that information technology will bring about a particular form of information society. It is the opinion that the sequence of change of technology is inevitable and asks for a particular social change(Kim, 2006). When technology asks for it, however, not only the degree of technological development but also the credibility of the degree of technological development plays an important role in changing a society. This study was implemented based on the opinion that social change and individual change can vary depending on the degree of trust of people in the Internet technology. This study analyzes preferences of real-name system depending on the credibility of anonymity on the Internet and its influences on the behaviors of users, focused on the survey on the difference between ordinary users and users related to the Internet business. It also suggests not only the potential and the appropriateness of anonymity on the Internet, but also measures to alleviate adverse effects of it. Lastly, the objective of this study is to offer a dispute of real-name system and the standard of the anonymity policy on web sites.
