GOMES, Vinicius Romagnolli Rodrigues  and  CANIATO, Ângela. Adolescents on contemporaneity: subjective unfolding about divestment on virtual. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.1, pp. 133-146. ISSN 1983-3482.

This article aims to understand the ramifications of teenage use of virtual social networks in contemporary society by a psychoanalytic perspective that comprises the adolescence as a subject who is built on/by the relationship with the other, through a social and cultural via, as well as by identification processes. To understand the relationship between adolescents and culture, we have used the concept of ideal as the culture guiding principles which offer references about what shall be longed for. Our hypothesis, however, is that contemporaneity goals forged by society have not fulfilled their function of performing a sense of security and fostering social ties/bonds, social bonds like what was proposed by Freud (2010c [1930]). Instead, they have thrown them to seek for shelter through consumerism and virtuality, what can be watched on Facebook.

Keywords : adolescence; contemporaneity; Facebook.
