Recently, many companies and academic laboratories have emerged formulating new materials of biological origin for use in artifacts, in response to a scenario of unsustainability. This work aimed to investigate institutions that developed biomaterials, focusing on those that had real applications. In this sense, through social networks, several representative examples of the theme were found and analyzed from a qualitative perspective. In addition to an analysis of data collected through images

The results indicate that Instagram's artificial intelligence was valid to suggest different profiles that had to do with the research, such virtual platforms facilitate the perception and faster visualization of these biomaterials, however for a deeper analysis it was not so efficient, although they serve to disseminate and stimulate new initiatives in this context.
