Abstract:
The objective of this research is firstly, to evaluate claims that cyberspace, due to its inherent qualities, has had an unprecedented effect on how we construct, present and think about our collective and individual identities online and offline. Secondly, it will highlight how people use shared understandings of popular culture products in order to maintain social formations in cyberspace.
