PIMENTEL, Adelma. Careful Use of Virtual Social Networks. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.spe, pp. 978-996. ISSN 1808-4281.

Virtual social networks allow an individual to share connections with other and establish strong and weak social bonds. In this scenario, its abusive use takes place under the influence of Information and Communication Technologies. The purpose of the text is to reflect on the use of virtual social networks, and ignorance of the other; and gestaltic connections for the careful use. The method was theoretical and critical analysis of texts, examining the search for the affirmation of diversity and difference in contexts of deterritorialization, biotechnologies, post-truth, reduced empathy, psychic fragility that affects the subjectivation of people, causing psychological distress. We consider that, caring is imperative, involves preventive and interventional strategies around people and institutions to face physical and psychological inequities, to which we are exposed. It is a guiding thread of health. We point out that Gestalt-therapists converge with the heideggerian's thinking that postulates care as the essence of human existence. Caring is the counterpoint to the sickness that is performed as a spectacle that regulates social relations mediated by the use of the internet. It is also tolerance, deep respect for the other, it is solidarity between all men and all women, justice, democracy and respect for human rights.

Keywords : care; gestalt-therapy; virtual social networks; tolerance; spectacle.
