… digital communication favours the pornographic exhibition of intimacy and the private sphere. The social networks turn out to be spaces of exhibition of the private. ROLAND BARTHES defined the private sphere as the space in which I am not an image, not an object. Today we no longer have a private sphere since there no longer exists a space in which I am not an image. In self-illumination, pornographic exhibition and panoptical control coincide: the control society takes place where the inhabitants confide in one another and expose themselves not due to external constriction but to interior need. Freedom and control become indistinguishable.
