Abstract
Due to the present age of the Internet, society has been witnessing major changes in everyday life. Social interaction is progressively shifting to the virtual world, prompting people to form communities on the Internet where their virtual identities interact. The modern-day hipster subculture is the most prominent ever since the Internet has come to be, and as a result hipsters have become a global phenomenon, changing the way subcultures work. However, the public eye views them as an insignificant fad — as pretentious, elitist ‘nerds’ that represent no importance whatsoever, denoting the term hipster as a pejorative. Nonetheless, certain values observed in the hipster subculture, like individuality, passion for arts and fashion, alternative lifestyles — along with their way of relating to technology and media — strike a resemblance to the counterculture movement of the 1960’s. That movement was also blemished in public at the time, disparaging their affiliates and calling them unproductive ‘hippies’. Today, the 1960’s counterculture movement is regarded as a revolutionary movement that has changed the world for the better — which implies that hipsters are receiving unfair public treatment at this very moment.
