The author considers identity: a phenomenon that is distinct from role ,matter between being and becoming . Research methodology based on existing data . With the studies performed, it was shown that in the past location and families had a key role on the formation of youth identity, because youth lived in small, closed environment, and social identity that they were formed through face to face contact with everyone in a constant environment. They had less contact with outside world and the traditions that shape much of their identity. Following the emergence of the planned media family being in modern times, role of family and place was very pale in shaping identity, because the media are able to separate the individual from place and his family and with reduced interaction between family members, transplant them to throw virtual environments. So people are faced with multiple sources of identity and identity are shaped by Non-local and virtual form. With this comment , youth identity is formed in the traditional family, the strength identity and families in transition (like Iran) more hybrid identity and the media families, virtual identity.
