3.4 Democracy, Freedom and social network Services in the general public Sphere

As it is the actual situation with privacy, identification, community and relationship on SNS, ethical debates concerning the impact of SNS on civil discourse, freedom and democracy into the public sphere must be observed as extensions of a wider conversation concerning the governmental implications for the Internet, one which predates online 2.0 criteria. Most of the literary works with this topic centers on issue of whether or not the Web encourages or hampers the free exercise of deliberative general public reason, in a fashion informed by Jurgen Habermas’s (1992/1998) account of discourse ethics and deliberative democracy within the general public sphere (Ess 1996 and 2005b; Dahlberg 2001; Bohman 2008).
