Representación de la Identidad Adolescente Mediante Imágenes del Facebook

Translated title of the contribution: Representation Of Adolescent Identity Through Facebook Images

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The contemporary communicational subject recreates itself and the social meanings of its context, including the meanings of its identity. On Facebook, young users access a visual zapping with photographs published by their friends, each with features that may or may not be added to the representation of themselves. For them there is no continuity between the offline and online world, configuring identities in the web photos that go on to create the meanings of their offline identity. But how is it that users between the ages of 13 and 15 represent their identity through the photographs they publish on Facebook? Although users do not believe that they present who they are on the web, being part of Facebook, they access signs that they adopt to recognize themselves among Internet peers and manifest who they are from differentiation but also from similarity.
