by Olga Sergeyeva; Lyubov Makarova
International Journal of Electronic Governance (IJEG), Vol. 8, No. 3, 2016

Abstract: Messages in online social networks can be considered as private archives (letters, photos and videos of ordinary people). But digital writing and images have no physical substance. These new recourses impact social time and collective memory. In this paper, we present the results of empirical study the perception of time of the Russian elderly (60+) who use online social networks. We have examined the important trends which are connected with perception of time among the elderly (disembodiment, linearity and synchronisation of time). We have analysed vectors of time and discussed the construction of past as possible everyday practice for contemporary senior users.
