The Faces of Crisis. Remarks on the Problems of Contemporary Man Based on the Comments of the Facebook Service Users
Languages of publication
The article deals with different images of social and cultural effects of the financial crisis which are created and propagated by users of the Facebook service. The text consists of two complementary parts. The first part, titled The Faces of Crisis, discusses numerous forms of presenting on Facebook pages the socio-cultural problems that result from the financial crisis. The second part (made up of two sections titled Facebook as a Medium of Colloquial Thinking and “National Bank of the Former Republic of Greece”, respectively) characterizes this social networking service as a medium of colloquial knowledge which is an important element of describing and cognizing reality. The main hypothesis of the reflections developed in the article is based on the belief that Facebook, a medium that serves to express a variety of emotions and feelings, thereby facilitating the articulation of numerous attitudes possible in the public life, is becoming a filter of the civic society.
