BERANUY, Marta; FERNANDEZ-MONTALVO, Javier; CARBONELL, Xavier  y  COVA, Félix. Characteristics of Internet use in cybercafes. Ter Psicol [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.1, pp.5-14. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082016000100001.

This article discusses the pattern of Internet use from 93 young users of cybercafés in the city of Concepción (Chile). Two instruments were administrated: a questionnaire about Sociodemographic Data and Internet habits and another one about Internet problematic use (CERI). Additionally, the main motivation for using the Internet was analyzed. The results showed that most users of cybercafés were men and the frequented this place in search of games or communication. The users spent an average of 2.5 hours per session and email was the most used service. Users with higher scores in CERI were those of role playing games (MMORPG) and youtube. The main motivation of MMORPG players was social-relational. All players were men and spent extended periods in the cybercafé (up to 12 hours).

Palabras clave : Internet; cybercafé; abuse; Internet addiction; Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games.
