By LIZ SANTINAPOPRA, AP WriterIn “Star Wars,” a character called “Jedi Master Yoda” leads the galaxy to a new age of peace.
In “Star Trek,” an alien race called the Borgs have invaded Earth.
In an era of social media and instant gratification, a couple of people with the same name can now share a single image of themselves, and it has become a symbol of their own individuality.
It’s the perfect example of how, through the power of social networks, we can have a singular sense of self, say those who study the phenomenon.
The idea is that our own unique sense of identity, or what some call our “unique self,” can be shared across the world, allowing us to connect with others and forge new connections.
For a few, this may sound like an obvious, if not entirely novel, benefit.
Others are skeptical.
For some, it’s just another form of ego-boosting.
But the phenomenon has taken off in recent years, and is now becoming an important part of popular culture.
It has even spawned a movie.
For those of us who have had a unique sense, sharing that photo or video could lead to a lifetime of online fame, a sense of belonging, even a sense that we have been chosen to represent the human race.
The result has been an unprecedented wave of celebrity-sharing.
The most common social media username for a celebrity now is Yoda, and nearly every celebrity who has been photographed or shared a picture or video has a personal message.
That’s according to a study published in the journal Psychology Today by researchers at the University of British Columbia and the University in Sydney.
In the study, researchers used the popular social-networking site Reddit to study the way people who have similar names are sharing and communicating.
In this study, they found that when people shared images of themselves that had similar names, their overall emotional state was influenced by the way they viewed the image.
They also found that people who had shared similar pictures of themselves also shared more images of their personal characteristics, such as their physical appearance and the types of music they listen to.
The results of the study suggest that people’s own personal identities may be shaped by how they are perceived online.
“Our findings suggest that, in certain ways, we are not as unique as we are imagined to be,” lead researcher Joanna Lohman said in a news release.
“We’re not unique just because of who we are, but how we are perceived.”
In other words, if you share your unique identity on social media, it might actually be influencing how other people see you.
“What we’ve found is that if we’re seen as a part of a larger social group, our online identities may have more of an impact on our physical appearance, our physical traits and even our social relationships,” Lohmen said.
“And that may have implications for us.”
The study was the first to look at the influence of personal identities on other people’s online identity.
It was funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
The study included 14 men and women, all in their 20s and 30s, and participants took part in an online survey.
Participants were randomly assigned to two groups.
One group was told they had a name that had been popular for years, while the other group was given a generic name that they could not recall.
Then, the researchers compared their online accounts and their actual offline identities.
They found that the participants who shared their unique identity had a significant negative effect on their online reputation.
The people who shared the name of their preferred celebrity were significantly less likely to have their own name posted online and more likely to post a message with their own image.
Participants in the other two groups also were significantly more likely than those in the celebrity-based group to post comments or pictures of their online image.
The researchers found that online personalities are more likely, for example, to post selfies and posts of their faces and bodies, and to post images of what they look like.
But even the online personalities with a different name were still more likely with their real name than their generic name.
The participants who were in the “Star-Wars” or “StarTrek” universe were also more likely in online interactions to post negative comments and images of those with their image.
“In other words,” Lahman said, “we are all part of the Star Wars universe.”
The researchers also found the effect of their celebrity names was more pronounced for female celebrities than for male ones.
Female celebrities with celebrity names like Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Kim Kardashian were more likely overall to post an image of their face and body.
But when the researchers examined the images of female celebrities with a celebrity name like Rihanna or Beyoncé in addition to the generic ones, the effects were reversed.
Lohmann said there are other ways to create a sense for
