Abstract: This paper presents findings of ongoing research of an interdisciplinary research program concentrated on how new digital media practices involving the Internet impact on the lives, identities, learning and socialization of migrant youth. The focus is put on second-generation Dutch-Moroccan youth, meaning children born in the Netherlands of parents who actually migrated to the Netherlands. In this paper an attempt is made to unravel processes of online identification by looking at circulated pictures and created hyperlinks. The practices found online display an ongoing construction of heterogeneous and differential selves - that operate beyond the binary of global and local contexts - as they emphasize different loyalties and affiliations. Dutch-Moroccan youth were shown to make the Internet a convivial Mocro place. This concerns a bottom-up construction of ethnicity through the consumption and production of imageries and links that are often not either global or local but both.
