I think 'digital' is a way better term than any other offerings - certainly less unwieldy than 'ICTs'. 'Cyber' is even more dated, and 'virtual' has its own meaning.

Recently I was asked to contribute a chapter on "digital consumption" to an Edited book on new media etc. I sent a friendly note to the editor stating that
the word "digital" is so 2005 or thereabouts and is history....I don't
 have a good substitute..."virtual" sounds slightly worse...so I am now in a fix and am looking for an appropriate term...

Any thoughts?
