Nowadays, social platforms play a leading role in the ways of social communication and knowledge building. Young people are the main recipients and users of these means, both with positive effects in the learning and cognitive field and also with negative consequences in the social-relational field. Considered in terms of linguistic-communicative analysis, when used in the teaching do-main, social networks have both the advantage of providing ac-cessible corpora of conversational exchanges and that of contin-uously re-proposing the operational and pragmatic centrality of the subject/user.Starting from the parallel between the models of real conver-sation and the realizations of virtual communication, this contri-bution reports on the exploratory survey conducted in the aca-demic year 2018/2019 with students of the 3rd year of the courses in Educational Sciences and Community Education of the Uni-versity of Palermo. The survey focused on the linguistic-expressive analysis of 6,500 Fb students’ discussions conveying states of loneliness and socio-relational gaps.
