Abstract:

The formation of the British community in Bulgaria is a migration process, described as lifestyle migration that became with mass character in the early 21st century, the peak was registered between 2006 and 2008. In the communication process of the British community we can observe two types of boundaries, which in this study I called external and internal. The external is between real and virtual world, it is very porous and easily overcome, but in the absence of an internet connection and technological device it solidify. The British generate new levels of access to social membership that are created by them, assuming that they are internal.

Keywords:

British community, lifestyle migration, borders, virtual identity, electronic agora, social networks.
