SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

anonymity (noun) a state of being unknown; namelessness; lacking individuality.

If a person likes to remain unknown, they like anonymity. Anonymity is a situation in which a person's name, either on their request, or for any other reason, is kept a secret. A large number of people living in a group in which none of them are extraordinary in any way, live in anonymity. No one among them has individuality.

  • The famous writer of satires Jonathan Swift, of Gulliver's Travels fame, had his earlier books published in anonymity. Only later did people come to know that he was the author of those highly imaginative works.
  • Today, even in affluent countries, a large number of people live in anonymity, at subsistence levels, in slums.
