summary: it's been argued that social community websites (SNSs) represent a cultural area which supplies upward push to the approaches of self-presentation, impact administration and friendship functionality (boyd & Ellison, 2007). according to the tenets of discourse-centered on-line ethnography, this research investigates how id should be discursively generated, reproduced and co-constructed in the style of SNSs, taking as a working example Pathfinder, a Greek portal which includes social networking positive factors. The trends prompt by way of interviewing a Pathfinder internet developer in addition to via a pilot survey on social networking are traced in a favored Pathfinder networker’s profile. Adopting Zhao et al.’s (2008) sociological version of implicit and specific identification claims on SNSs and leaning on serious discourse analytical instruments (Fairclough, 2003; Reisigl & Wodak, 2001), the bankruptcy explores how the net self could be cemented and disseminated in narrative, enumerative and visible phrases through an armory of linguistic and multimodal suggestions. during this model, SNSs shouldn't be approached as a sheer technological artefact, yet as a “space for progress” (Turkle, 1997) that encourages clients to have business enterprise shaping collaboratively their very own linguistic, social and mental improvement

In his work on the Trobriand islanders, Malinowski (1929, quoted in Yaguello 1978) established that their kinship terminology is organised on the basis of two criteria: 1. Same/different gender as the speaker 2. Older/younger than the speaker This means that the word for sister, for example, will vary according to whether the speaker is male or female, and whether the speaker is older or younger than the sibling. 1 shows how the system works for the relationships of brother, sister, brother-in-law and sister-in-law.
