This paper examines the role played by the technical object in the production of self and focuses on certain lines of approach to understanding the links between Facebook and how much freedom net users have in creating their online self. Given the techniques of self activated, we evaluate this digital networking platform as a disciplining device for both the subject and the collective self. Ethical considerations relating to online practices of self will be explored from different perspectives: the subject's freedom according to Foucault's ethics, Kant's deontological approach and Bentham and Mill's utilitarian approach.
