The term "cyberspace" was coined by William Gibson in the 1984 novel Neuromancer, in which those in contact with each other by way of computer feel as if they are interacting in reality, when in fact they are interacting within the non-physical universe.

Today, cyberspace is a term that generally refers to the virtual world of computers, or the world network of computers. While certainly an interesting term, it is subject to overuse, especially by those new to computers.
