Abstract:

This paper reflects the new relationships the young people of Latin Americans from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Uruguay connected to Internet are establishing through this medium. The Internet has opened up a new world in communications and has created opportunities not only for the production of information content, entertainment, and for advertising, but also for the interaction among peers and a vehicle for the transmission of the foundations of their country's culture and their integration to the 'adult' world.
