As a child of the digital age, there’s never really been a time in my life when I haven’t had access to the internet. However, in the last few years, as our reliance on the internet has increased, cyberspace has become a mess of what is real and what is fake.

These days, all you need to create content that can be sent out into cyberspace is an internet connection and a device. This has made it easier than ever for people from all walks of life to create digital content, whether it can be considered fact or not.

This clash means that there is no real way of telling what is fact or fiction when it comes to cyberspace. Because of this, everybody’s experience is different. Just because everyone has access to the same space, doesn’t meant that all experiences are the same, as it all comes down an individual’s perceptions and perspectives of the content that cyberspace presents them with.

Catch ya on the flip side,

  1. Hey Jess, well done on setting up a very professional blog! I like how you’ve reflected on how the Internet has impacted on your own life, and used this to explain cyberspace and the issues surrounding what’s real and what’s not. The only thing I would suggest is including an academic source or interesting article on the topic to back up your own reflection. Your GIF remediation is so aesthetic – exactly as expected from people like us who are cyberspace born and raised! Great work and good luck with the rest of the semester.


  2. I found your post quite enjoyable as your remediation reflected on your experience growing up with the internet. It seems quite evident throughout your post that you have a very good understanding of cyberspace and you were able to explain it in your own words in a very clear way. I understood your post about cyberspace, and the unknown of real vs fake on the internet, better than the lecture notes.
