“When Facebook washed up on the shores of Trinidad, it felt as though someone in the United States, who had never heard of the place, had unwittingly invented an instrument that is the purest expression of Trinidadian culture.” Writes DANIEL MILLER, Professor of Anthropology at University College, London. His new book TALES FROM FACEBOOK examines how the new social media interacts and affects the complex culture of the people of Trinidad and Tobago. It some ways, Facebook , or Fasbook as Trinidadians call it, reinforces certain cultural values of community, but at the same time Fasbook also contributes to very particular notion of chaos or “baccahnal.” Tune in for some fascinating insights into how the new social media is interpreted used by other cultures.
