The Power of Language on Social Media
To a certain extent, the commercialization of digital media promises a space of expression and the technologization of the language of freedom.
The importance of language in social life is a common topic of discussion. However, an awareness of language shifts requires a bit of caution, as demonstrated in the last decade, when as a social act, language developed alongside the growth of social media in everyday communication, which became easier and cheaper.
Linguistic shifts do not only occur at the macro level, as in the interplay between different languages, which still shows the dominance of the power of English and Mandarin in the arena of international communication and trade discourse. But also at the micro level, within each nation-state that adapts to the “technologization” of language on social media.
