First, by studying technophobia the full extent of the phenomenon has become apparent.With surveys revealing technophobia in up to 50 per cent of many populations, feelings of computer-related anxiety cannot be dismissed or marginalized.Technophobia is a legitimate response to technology.Just as technophobia has been reported as affecting more females than males, computer addiction has been found to be almost exclusively a male phenomenon (Shotton, 1989).I will first discuss cyberspace, then I will discuss about technophobia.
