Moreover, the author came out the factors which could influence the users making personal homepages based on certain researches and theories so that it is objective enough to take these factors in to consideration. Whereas, Cheung has come out only mainly the internet access and commercial ideologies as the basic factors of influencing the users making personal homepage, this is still seemed narrow to some extent. More representative factors need to be explored and investigated. However, this book and especially this chapter is a worthy read for the study of the internet and virtual space and its connection between the realities.

The internet might not only be affecting social abilities, but also cognitive abilities. According to Descartes, what determines ones existence is cognition, and thinking is considered identity. His famous quote was not “I google therefore, I am.” An argument can be made about how creativity is being effected. The internet is not only a place where people find new friends, but also information. It is possible that we have access to too much information.
To begin with, the Internet plays a significant role in the world of communication. Communication is fundamental to individuals on numerous purposes, whether to express viewpoints or distribution of information subjective to intents of individual. In this modern era, the practices of traditional means of communication are extinctive and, are replaced by telecommunication or digital means such as Internet. Brey(2004) states that,” The Internet facilitates one-to-one, one-to-many and many- to-many communication and enables users to communicate easily and inexpensively with a wide variety of individuals across the globe”. For example, Social networks such as Facebook, offers one-to –one, many-to- many communications and it is free to subscribe or signup.
