Abstract: In this dissertation, I look at young adults in Malta who form part of the social media community. I argue that the relationship between their online and offline worlds is complex and of several kinds. It calls for a broad perspective of how what goes on offline influences online activity and vice-versa. I also examine the notions of what is public and private, arguing that neither concept has been erased by social media, and that the context of the public-private distinction needs to be seen in the light of etiquette and social capital.
