Abstract

Abstract Culture is generally perceived as the collection of ideas and habits transmitted from generation to generation (Linton in Haralambos and Heald, 1980). It determines the characteristics of a certain group of people. In a post-industrial era, technology holds an important role as the medium to develop culture. Here, information technology is the key to the advancement of a society. The emergence of Facebook has given a space for those who cannot express their self-existence. Eventually, it creates a special social context among the users. Thus, Facebook presents a cultural contestation against the traditional concept of communication. The way viewers give comment or click on the thumb symbol portrays their cultural representation. Key words: culture, representation, Facebook, social context
