Neuroscience in Social Media: Where Are the Numbers of Content Censored On Social Networks?
Jaqueline Costa Ribeiro
The present work proposes a qualitative analysis in bibliographic research of texts related to neuroscience, social media, and their relationship with censored narratives. In addition to the use of qualitative resources and ethnographic methods, it is also based on the report published by Facebook on the application of censorship. As a complement to thecorpus, there is direct collection of news published under this filter, in addition to posts denouncing censorship. The data extracted from April to September 2018 are the most recent carried out by the company and published on its website. The material was analyzed from the notions acquired through the literature review, through the investigation of the frequency of occurrence. The objective is, therefore, to reflect on recent studies in the field of neuroscience and social media, inserted in the universe of studies of media narratives, identifying factors that enhance knowledge (offline and online) and behavior, crossing their relationship with the contents of narratives censored and/or selected by large private companies and the way they condition human thought and trustworthy and democratic information.
