The Internet, new information and communication technologies today are being entrenched into the fabric of our society at a very rapid rate. The Internet has emerged as an extraordinary prominent medium having a tremendous impact on and within society. Its remarkable attributes and rapid growth, and their profound influence within society have been the subject of enormous media coverage, scholarly publications, specialty magazines, and public discussion. The physical developments in these fields have had significant impact in the ability to communicate rapidly and efficiently around the world and in the functioning of society. Cyber spatial communication has provided possibilities for changing the way people communicate with one another and engage in social and cultural activities. Internet has become a powerful medium of communication and it seems that the people are more willing to take advantage of it. Internet communication does not make its users depressed or lonely, and it does not seem to be a threat to community life.

The availability of the new modality of communication represented by the Internet does not lead to fundamental changes in social life and cultural practices. The Internet provides people with a technology that allows them to engage in activities that they have already had ways to engage in but provides them with some added efficiencies and opportunities to tailor their interactions to better meet their needs. The socio-cultural impact of cyber spatial communication reveals that it has made differences with regard to language and increase in the level of cultural knowledge.

While the modalities of life rapidly evolve, the cyber spatial interaction accelerates the pace for the people to better live with cultural values ingrained into their lives.
