Abstract

This essay seeks to address some examples of using the virtual ethnography in cyber culture studies as well as a brief questioning on the role of the researcher in this context. By defining the role of virtual ethnography as a methodology for studies on the Internet (Hine, 2000) and as an investigative and interpretative method for cultural behavior and online communities (Kozinets, 1997), the method itself is translated as object of study, focus of this discussion.
