  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Knowledge; Expertise; Collective Learning; Web; Technoscientific Citizenship.

The article explores the online communities composed by pregnant women or new-mothers. A lot of online communities have been analysed in order to assess patient empowerment, but the capacity and interest in spreading, taking over and discussing health information are less investigated. Therefore the paper aims to evaluate the dynamics in spreading and use of the knowledge in digital platforms. The main goal of this study is the comprehension of the new processes of knowledge production and appropriation, with the consequent redefinition of an innovative equilibrium between experts and non-experts.
