    Thank you for the very interesting comments. I am not sure how this connects to the previous topic, but I was wondering whether anyone was aware of any studies on the impact of social networking sites on how people express personal narratives? We are allowed (and encouraged) to select the stories we want to tell on an online space.
    To what extent do certain stories get forgotten or excluded? And what about the therapeutic value of narratives? Does the possibility of having an online narrative discourage face to face impromptu story-telling? Or is the compulsion to condense one’s personal story in a few lines a different (new) way of fashioning identities and thus a new process of narrative analysis?
