Come on--I'm not looking for sex in this chatroom just because I offered you a cyberhug!

This word can be used when:
1. You want to give someone a hug via electronic means.

2. You don't like to give physical hugs (ie. you don't like touching other people) and prefer to type it out in an email or in a chat room.

3. It can be a token of appreciation over the internet. Instead of saying just "thank you", typing "cyber hug" will be like the icing on the cake.

4. It is almost like XOXO but with less intensity.
Britney typed: Honey, I was looking at this veggie-chopper on an infomercial the other day. It looks lovely!

Anthony typed: Hey baby, I will get you one next time I visit you.

Britney typed: THANKS! Cyber hugs!

Cyberhhug is when you get the sweetest text message, just when you need it most. Often involves mention of children or small animals. Guaranteed to make you smile.
My beastie just sent me a cyberhug...a picture of her kids wearing the jammies that I sent them for Easter.
