There are many disagreements among elites about development pattern modeling in Islamic republic of Iran. One of these disagreements is basis of development pattern modeling of communication system and cyberspace in general and disagreements such as modeling principles of domestic social networks in particular. This research deals with the question that whether or not the cyberspace, internet, social media and social networks can be policymaking, manage and planning development on basis of culture and identity of each country. If so, what set of principles should govern the process. The mainstream materialistic approaches of Iranian researchers consider culture to be a dependent variable against independent variables such as technology. So look for type and depths of cyberspace, media and social networks effects on our culture and identity. Unlike that approach, we used Q method to investigate the mindset of experts, managers, policymakers and active users of the cyberspace regarding the role that culture and identity might play in the formation of domestic social networks. Analyzing the questionnaires returned by influential activists of the cyberspace, we found five primary mindsets regarding the aforementioned issue, dimensions of which are briefly elaborated. Finally, based on our understanding of the investigated mindsets and their interrelationships, a few operational suggestions are recommended to policymakers in this field.
