By providing symbols, rituals, and representations, expressions, emotions, relations, media compose shared memories of modern people. Collective memory mostly consists of publicly available social events that are circulating in the media environments.
Typical expressionist qualities of highly subjective, personal, spontaneous self-expression can be seen in the network culture; especially, considering with instant sharing on social media. Its goals impose the individuals’ own sensibility to the world’s representation, rather than reproduce the impression suggested by the dominant media institutions or media patrons. Although the new media environment is challenged by the big companies which make the technology possible, its construction is incontrovertibly liberated in comparison by the older media environment.
