Abstract

Spanish abstract:Un artículo sobre la reticulación social ubicua y sobre Facebook, vistos como una intervención radical sobre las redes sociales elitistas que estuvieron en el origen de la intervención genial de Zuckerberg sobre la comunicación mediada por ordenador y sobre la presentación social del sujeto. Todo ello por medio de una crítica al film de David Fincher 'La Red Social', basado en los pleitos que rodearon a la autoría de la aplicación. Trascendiendo la sociabilidad elitista de Harvard, Facebook supuso una reelaboración radical de los espacios en red y de la blogosfera, amén de una metamorfosis de la identidad personal de Zuckerberg, de sus círculos sociales y de su proyecto vital.

English abstract: A paper on Facebook and ubicuous online social networking as a radical intervention on the elitist social networks which were at the origin of Zuckerberg's stroke of genius in computer-mediated communication and in social self-presentation. This is done by way of a critique of David Fincher's film 'The Social Network' based on the lawsuits attending the authorship of the network. The elitist Ivy-League Harvard sociality was transcended into a radical reworking of personal online spaces and of the blogosphere, as well as a metamorphosis of Zuckerberg's personal identity, his social circles, and his priorities and agenda.

Keywords: Facebook, Fincher, Zuckerberg, Social networking, Elitism, Sociality, Computer-mediated communication
