Abstract

Nowadays the use of the Internet enables anyone to access a huge amount of information on any topic. However, when scientific contexts are approached, often it becomes difficult for the “generic” user to understand the research results. Internet, the network of networks, has become the symbol of global society. The net, understood both as a technology infrastructure and as a global social community, is the space where information, data, knowledge and skills are increasingly created and disseminated. This article considers a particular area of  net communication, that  is related to science; it comes from academia and through the popularization of results, reaches the public. The current situation of science on the web is analysed, focusing also on obtainable scientific information on Facebook through pictures.
