The Facebook social network is an emerging and young phenomenon that accounts for half of Afghanistan's Internet users. This research has been done about women's behavior in cyberspace and the roles that women show of themselves, especially on Facebook, based on Judith Butler's perspective of gender confusion. This research method is a survey and a questionnaire used to collect data. The statistical population of the research is the female citizens of Sheberghan city, and the research sample size is 384 women using Cochran's formula. The relationship between the presence of women and culture, ruling traditions, patriarchal discourse, and social norms are the hypotheses of this research. The study's findings showed a correlation between the presence of women in social networks and the works of the ruling culture and traditions. RK=0.072 shows a positive sign that the effects of culture and ruling traditions greatly impact how women are present in social networks. There is also a positive correlation between the presence of women in social networks and the discourse of the patriarch; RK=0.061 gives a positive ratio that the discourse of the patriarch affects the presence of women in social networks. Also, there is a positive correlation between the presence of women in social networks and the effects of social norms, with RK=0.055 for the positive relationship, which shows that the effects of social norms impact the presence of women in social networks. Also, from the results of this research, it was found that there is a positive relationship between marital status, income, the field of study, and education status over the presence of women.
