Abstract

Third Space is thinking differently of the significance and meanings of space progressing beyond the inadequacy of dualism, as in mental and physical space. The discourse on Third space emerges to set aside the ‘either/or’ manner of binary categorizing to encompass ‘both/and also’ logic that allows an ‘Other’ set of options. The online social networking is the newest thing in creating connectivity and the identities. This paper is an attempt to comprehend and recognize the dynamics of the concept of Third space through the online social networking realm.
