In the last decade social media and 2.0 technologies have deeply shaped the way people get informed and communicate with each other. If the first phase of the Internet phenomenon enormously expanded the communication horizons, the 2.0 environment has set new models of communication that have not only a further impact on the enlargement of the audience but are also changing the relation between the publisher and the reader. Indeed, the distance and the difference between these two subjects have decreased creating new opportunities for a better understanding of the society.
