Cyberbehavior, as the object of study of cyberpsychology, refers to the set of human behaviors that require an electronic device with Internet access to interact with other persons in both synchronous and asynchronous ways. Although the first studies of cyberbehavior took place with the popularization of the so-called “Social Web", few works focus on reviewing this literature. This paper aims to provide a bibliometric review of the scientific publication on cyberbehavior by analyzing all the documents published by four of the most representative international journals on the topic. The results show that in spite of the growth of the scientific community, the research has focused on the use of Facebook and other social media, while relevant subject matters for psychologists (e.g., motivation, personality, Internet addiction, cyberbullying or self-expression) remain little explored.
