ROSA, Gabriel Artur Marra e  and  SANTOS, Benedito Rodrigues dos. Repercussions of social networks on user subjectivity: a critical literature review. Temas psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.4, pp. 913-927. ISSN 1413-389X.

This article aims to map and review the literature on the repercussions of social networks on the subjectivity of its members to review whether such literature has the potential to elucidate the possible effects of the process called negotiation of identities in contemporary subjectivity of individuals. To achieve this goal, it was used the methodology of the state of the art, that checks the status of academic and scientific literature on the subject. Four data bases were accessed by a period of two years. The literature notes the aestheticization of the self, but interprets it as a consumer society, limiting the understanding of other interpretive possibilities as a new device for the production of meanings. Thus the conclusions reached is that although there are relevant results, the field of studies on these effects has some gaps that need to be filled in order to advance through the prosperous virtual path.

Keywords : Social networks; repercussions; subjectivity; literature review.
