[Autom. eng. transl.] Work has become an increasingly elusive object: not only the social sciences, literature, cinema and art have lost the ability to represent it. The associations are in trouble: they are struggling to enter into relations with dispersed and mobile workers, they are unable to identify collective needs on which to build their own contractual platforms, they have lost that sense of belonging necessary for the exercise of representation. Social networks are a square, where you can meet and talk about your work, but also an auditorium, where you can confront and reflect, a fair where you can showcase your products and a market, where you can exchange resources. Through social networks, collective action gives way to connective action, belonging to the connection, solidarity to collaboration. This book collects the experiences and stories of the changing work, through social media. Stories of workers who in social networks see the boundaries between their roles fall and look for new ways to represent their identity and build a reputation; stories of people browsing networks to look for work; stories of employees looking for information and opportunities for discussion that go beyond the boundaries of their companies; stories of professionals who build new professional communities in social media.
