Abstract

The social network can be regarded as a technical device in that it combines both technical agreements for the production of content or the construction of new forms of sociality, and social agreements which enable users to leave their footprint on the social network in question and extract contextualised uses. In this sense, cultural forms can circulate at the level of these social networks and even more so if users represent a specific population. The study we carried out on Facebook’s young French-Malagasy teenagers showed that cultural forms relating to the cultures of origin circulate in the social network. In this case, they can show a desire to claim identity among individuals, as in the case of the idealisation of territorial identity through the incorporation of pages dedicated to the country of origin into the personal profiles.
