Cyberspace is a human construction, a personal and social experience that creates and recreates itself. We prowl cyberspace bringing with us our avatars or profiles, "selves" that we construct. We "friend" and "unfriend" in cyberspace establishing, developing, maintaining and ending relationships online. Who is the person that other people meet online?
