QUOTES PHENOMENON AS A SYMPTOM OF THE LACK OF (CRITICAL) REFLECTION ON THE FACEBOOK SOCIAL NETWORK
Text topic: (Lack Of) Culture
Text author: Дивна Вуксановић
The paper critically reviews current understanding of certain cultural phenomena (quotes), considered in the light of complex global communication and media progress, based on the rapid development of new technologies and social networking and through the use of the Internet and the so-called “social networks” such as Facebook. The focus of research has highlighted the appearance of over-quoting, which has almost overwhelmed all social networks substituting the opinions, ritualizing forms of communication in the virtual space and invoking memories of the old cultural phenomena. In this way, users either simulate the traditional patterns of cultural behavior on the network or they quote/adapt suitable experiences leading to deconstruction of their own identity.
