What is a internet/cyber culture
Cyber culture is the culture that has emerged, or is emerging, from the use of computer networks for communication, entertainment and business. It is also the study of various social phenomena associated with the Internet and other new forms of network communication, such as online communities, online multi-player gaming, social media and testing

Overview
Since the boundaries of cyber culture are difficult to define, the term is used flexibly, and its application to specific circumstances can be controversial. It generally refers at least to the cultures of virtual communities, but extends to a wide range of cultural issues relating to "cyber-topics", e.g. cybernetics, and the perceived or predicted cyborgization of the human body and human society itself. It can also embrace associated intellectual and cultural movements, such as cyborg theory and cyberpunk.

The term often incorporates an implicit anticipation of the future
Cyber culture is a wide social and cultural movement closely linked to advanced information science and information technology, their emergence, development and rise to social and cultural prominence between the 1960s and the 1990s. Cyber culture was influenced at its genesis by those early users of the internet, frequently including the architects of the original project. These individuals were often guided in their actions by the hacker ethic. While early cyber culture was based on a small cultural sample, and its ideals, the modern cyber culture is a much more diverse group of users and the ideals that they espouse.
Manifestations of cyber culture

Manifestations of Cyber culture include various human interactions mediated by computer networks. They can be activities, pursuits, games, places and metaphors, and include a diverse base of applications. Some are supported by specialized software and others work on commonly accepted web protocols. Examples include but are not limited to:








Qualities of cyber culture

That said, there are several qualities that cyber cultures share that make them warrant the prefix �cyber-�. Some of those qualities are that cyber culture:

  • Is a community mediated by ICTs.
  • Is culture �mediated by computer screens.
  • Relies heavily on the notion of information and knowledge exchange.
  • Depends on the ability to manipulate tools to a degree not present in other forms of culture (even artisan culture, e.g., a glass-blowing culture).
  • Allows vastly expanded weak ties and has been criticized for overly emphasizing the same (see Bowling Alone and other works).
  • Multiplies the number of eyeballs on a given problem, beyond that which would be possible using traditional means, given physical, geographic, and temporal constraints.
  • Is a �cognitive and social culture, not a geographic one.
  • Is �the product of like-minded people finding a common �place� to interact
  • Is inherently more "fragile" than traditional forms of community and culture

Identity in cyber culture

Cyber culture, like culture in general, relies on establishing identity and credibility. However, in the absence of direct physical interaction, it could be argued that the process for such establishment is more difficult.
How does cyber culture rely on and establish identity and credibility? This relationship is two way, with identity and credibility being both used to define community in cyberspace and to be created within and by online communities.
In some senses, online credibility is established in much the same way that it is established in the off line world, however, since there are two separate worlds, it is not surprising that there are both differences in the mechanisms found in each and interactions of the markers found in each

    Wow guys. I have been a big fan of various games for a long time and many of my friends even make good money on esports. This is really cool, especially if you use such suggestions for one of my favorite games VALORANT like on this site z3ddota.com valorant. This decision really quickly helps to achieve great success in the battle and have a significant advantage over other players, so I'm very happy now that I can confidently defeat many opponents.

    I believe that the Internet has changed our world irrevocably and for the better. Now it is difficult to imagine someone who would not visit social networks. Now the proportion of social media users seems to be growing. As a rule, teenagers start to use social networks quite often. Instagram and Snapchat are the most popular.
    I mean, they make good content. Many of them have large audiences. You can also promote your account with positive reviews that you can buy here https://accfarm.com/buy-positive-reviews . I did it myself and don't regret it, it was a worthwhile investment.
