Facebook, un espace d'expression et de visibilité religieuse : le cas de l'islam (2012-2014)

Abstract : Social networks are an integral part of the lives of millions of French people, and Facebook is a privileged space for expression and representation of identity and community. Given the fact that many users who define themselves as French and Muslims create on this global social network pages, groups and profiles dedicated to Islam, we wanted to question, especially in a context where Islam regularly occupies the media agenda, the logics underlying their presence on this social network. Far from any normative consideration, the aim is to move the gaze towards the actors through the analysis of the way in which they are defined and consider their uses. More generally, our problem is part of a comprehensive framework to see how Facebook - as a sociotechnical device - succeeds in shifting the boundaries traditionally devoted to Muslim religious expressions in a secular country like France
