The term online magazine refers to a magazine that is published on the Internet via bulletin boards and other public computer networks. The computer magazine Datamation was one of the first publications to switch from print to online publication. Webzines are the slang term for online magazines that are distributed via the World Wide Web. Small magazines and newsletters that are distributed via electronic mail, such as an ezine, are referred to as e-zines (or e-zines). The terms "cyberzine" and "hyperzine," which refer to the electronic distribution of resources, are sometimes used by social groups. Some online magazines may also call themselves "electronic magazines" or "e-magazines" to better reflect their readership or to capture alternative terms and spellings in online searches.
