The information age has trodden into a new era of the cybernetic social domain. Society and social capital are tangled in a hybrid cultural disposition. The new generation is the one experiencing a big step towards new virtual social capital compared to the old generation used to interact face-to-face. The research questions are presented with narratives: whether the authenticity of information is compromised by the virtual presence of facts and figures, which often are manipulation by politically motivated objectives or a capitalization of misleading data. Socially constructed isolation is the function of super-connectivity, leading to the formation of fragmented social borders while the virtual world connects profoundly with the virtual presence of data. This is the subject of new exploration that underpins the research premisehow the new generation builds upon the virtual data will look like in the future?
