This activates a process of mutual realization and allows influencers to create networks of subjects that cooperate for mutual adjustment (Landowski 2005) through Instagram Stories. We also want to develop an additional layer of analysis by focusing on the emerging phenomenon of divulgers. Starting from scientists and science communicators, such as Dario Bressanini (@dario.bressanini) and Beatrice Mautino (@divagatrice), we want to investigate how these figures can lead to a subversion of social networking services (SNS), which are used to create intermediate projects. This allows a mainstream and very heterogeneous audience to access contents that are normally available only to experts and niche audiences
