Proposal of a Digital Identity Scale


The concept of identity is very important in consumer behavior. It is considered as a predictor of behaviors. With a digital sociocultural context, a new perspective emerges in the marketing literature: the digital identity. With a qualitative study, we find four dimensions to define the construct (the multiplication of Self, the expression of the Self, the virtual sociality, the virtual reputation). Then we generate items. After a content validity with four experts, we conducted a quantitative study. By combining a principal component analysis (with a sample of 468 respondents) and a confirmatory factor analysis (524 respondents), we tested our scale with structural equation methods. The four dimensions model reveals satisfactory psychometric properties.
