Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine how youth useFacebook and how Facebook perceives construct their own identity. Anotherquestion was if the construction of the self-identity is different between thegenders.The study is based on empirical material that has been collected by usingquestionnaires. The questionnaire was handed out in three different classes in3rd grade in secondary school in southern Sweden. The analysis in this studywas based on two different kinds of theories, Erving Goffman’s social theory ofdramaturgical analysis and stigma and Yvonne Hirdman’s gender studies. The result showed that Facebook is a tool for youth to communicate and get intouch with other people. Youth uses Facebook to show selected parts ofthemselves, which create a ”hoped- for possible selves”. The result also showedthat girls are more aware of what they do on Facebook and the consequences of their activity,compared to boys. It seems that the construction of identity on Facebook variesbetween genders due to social structures.
