Abstract: Socialization in post-modern society relies primarily on the individual and his potential of interaction and expresses itself through new forms of social relations that tend to go towards the outsider, meant as other than himself. Individualization brings traditional educational agencies to undergo changes: family and school are no longer the same and are no longer sufficient and this makes it difficult for each subject, particularly when young, to implement an identity project. However, every society, in every historical period, offers to contemporaries something on which they continue to feel unique (recognizing themselves as individuals) and, at the same time, in accordance with others (identify themselves as part of a group). Social networks are a new form of socialization that is configured as a socializing practice that utilizes networks to extend acquaintances and friendships. Social bonds and relationships, in doing so, are always potentially more extensible. In order to support this thesis, we present the results of two researches: a quantitative analysis on an ad-hoc questionnaire compiled by 250 high school and University students, who live in Veneto (a region sited in the North of Italy) on their communicative preferences; and a quali-quantitative research which investigates the contents of “ MeYouMe-Mediterranean Youth Meeting” Facebook posts sent by young people, that discuss and share the social policies of the Mediterranean Countries. Both the studies had the aim to investigate the desires and reasons for encountering among groups of young people from different cultures. Results will evidence the communicative skills of young people and how they succeed (or fail) in building a path of socialization in which various social networks, either primary or secondary, interweave and mediate what seems distant and incomprehensible.

Abstract

Abstract: Socialization in post-modern society relies primarily on the individual and his potential of interaction and expresses itself through new forms of social relations that tend to go towards the outsider, meant as other than himself. Individualization brings traditional educational agencies to undergo changes: family and school are no longer the same and are no longer sufficient and this makes it difficult for each subject, particularly when young, to implement an identity project. However, every society, in every historical period, offers to contemporaries something on which they continue to feel unique (recognizing themselves as individuals) and, at the same time, in accordance with others (identify themselves as part of a group). Social networks are a new form of socialization that is configured as a socializing practice that utilizes networks to extend acquaintances and friendships. Social bonds and relationships, in doing so, are always potentially more extensible. In order to support this thesis, we present the results of two researches: a quantitative analysis on an ad-hoc questionnaire compiled by 250 high school and University students, who live in Veneto (a region sited in the North of Italy) on their communicative preferences; and a quali-quantitative research which investigates the contents of “ MeYouMe-Mediterranean Youth Meeting” Facebook posts sent by young people, that discuss and share the social policies of the Mediterranean Countries. Both the studies had the aim to investigate the desires and reasons for encountering among groups of young people from different cultures. Results will evidence the communicative skills of young people and how they succeed (or fail) in building a path of socialization in which various social networks, either primary or secondary, interweave and mediate what seems distant and incomprehensible.
