Public Space and the Internet
Public Leadership Credential. Our Priorities. Read More. In the evenings he often visits gay chat rooms and web pages to meet friends and explore his developing sexual and social interests. It allows him to establish an alternate space in which a whole range of alternate social actions are possible without having to leave the watchful gaze of his parents.
Other routes to such experimentation gay bars, public toilets are either restricted to him because of his age or dangerous. Text-based communication allows him to evaluate the character and intention of his interlocutors and disclose his own identity and intentions in a incremental way based on those evaluations. One example of this is the way he decides whether or not to share his pictures with others.
He says: If he asks for my photo only after a few words, I always try to put a test on him before giving my picture. Most people who are asking for a picture are either looking for fun or giving it to others.
This is what I am afraid of it. If he asks me for a photo after a really short conversation, I will never give my picture out.

And if we have been chatting for a few days and I think that we can really talk to each other and make friends with each other, I will give him my photo if he asks for it and is willing to give his picture to me first. However, he still wanted to see me as he felt I was very nice.
He never cared about my face. Well, it demonstrated that he was not for fun as he still wanted to meet an ugly guy. Actually it was a test, if someone still wants to meet after I tell him I am very ugly, he is probably not for fun. That guy passed the test! Ka Ho himself has very clear ideas about his physical boundaries. He says: A large number of guys in the chat room often asked me whether I was for fun or liked fucking, sucking, kissing……..
I am quite sure that most of guys, including me, like fucking, sucking, kissing so much. I think it is safer to have a stable partner. This phenomenon is the source of considerable consternation in media constructions of the internet which portray it as place where teenagers are susceptible to manipulation by older sexual predators, and much of this concern is justified. At the same time, what is often missing from these constructions is an understanding of the skills these young people have developed to manage these interactions, and the self-protection strategies they are able to make use of, strategies that teenagers, more familiar with the possibilities of the virtual communicative surround, are often more adept at than adults.
It should be clear from the above example that one of the most important things about the internet for young people is that it not just enables them to participate in different kinds of social interactions and social relationships, but that it allows them to participate as different kinds of people. Danny is the kind of student whose internet use has become a concern for his parents and teachers, the kind of student that is often the subject of alarmist media reports of internet addiction see for example Chan At school, Danny has figured out how to disable the teacher monitoring system at his workstation in the multimedia learning center.
Before his English lessons end, he usually logs onto the English learning website and quickly fills in the blanks in the grammar exercises that have been assigned, and sometimes he even gets a few right. In the physical space of the classroom, Danny is just a mediocre student.
In the world of Counter Strike, he is a man to respect. A fifteen year old can be far more worthy of attention than a fifty year old. You learn how to build up social networks. You learn how to interact with others.

Rules about how to act. You get to learn all that stuff. All of this requires considerable technical skill which Danny has mastered without the benefit of school-based instruction. What I want to become in the future. This layering of multiple contexts, which allow users to strategically enact multiple ways of being socially present, has fundamentally altered power relations in the physical spaces of their everyday lives. The kinds of political action taken by the young people in these studies is not usually targeted towards governments or public policy, but it nevertheless has a considerable impact on the way power is distributed in the immediate social environments of their homes and schools.
The nightly virtual gatherings they engage in via message boards, blogs, on- line games and instant messaging programs are important sites where social relationships and social hierarchies formed off-line are rehearsed and ratified, or challenged and contested. In many ways, a fifteen-year-old has access to modes of participation that his or her parents will never have access to. Conclusion The lesson from this comparison of different metaphors for cyberspace from different academic perspectives is not just that our definitions of participation alter with the kinds of conceptual spaces that we make available for that participation, but also that we as citizens or social interactants participate in cyberspace contingent on the metaphors we ourselves bring to it, metaphors that are grounded in the views of time and space that are dominant in our social worlds.
