In the case of online dating websites or smartphone apps, cyber amnesia is when one person sends a message to someone they have previously spoken to under the premise that they have never spoken before. This often happens when someone changes a profile picture, username, or profile information. It can seem rather awkward or strange to the person who does remember the previous conversation(s).
User1: Hey

User2: Hi, I think we spoke before. I'm (name), remember?

User1: Um I'm not sure... I'm (name).

User2: Yeah.... I know...

User1: Oops, sorry. Just had a bit of cyber amnesia right there. Of course I remember you! (probably doesn't)
