Abstract: 

Cyberspace as a new, widespread and, attractive kind of virtual spaces plays a more important role in social interactions in Iran day by day. However, its impact on the individual and social life has been a controversial issue. The article examines the impact of cyberspace on familial identity based on the data collected from a sample of university students. It begins with a more common definition in cyberspace and continues by discussing the relationship between cyberspace and social identity. Based on the theoretical framework it is hypothesized that the experience of the cyberspace has a negative effect on familial identity. Familial identity is measured by a scale developed based on Tajfel's social identity theory. The method for testifying the hypothesis is a cross sectional quasi-experimental one. The questionnaire filled by 365 students of Tehran University who were selected in a quota non-probability manner and divided into two groups: internet users (180) and non-users (185). Applying Mann-Whitney and multiple regression techniques our data did not find any significant relationship between internet usage and familial identity.
