The aim of this research is to discuss the expansion of the Internet for disseminating scientific bias dialogical. The scope of the corpus of research, previously archived, encompasses the utterances posted on Facebook by Scientific American Brazil, Pesquisa FAPESP and Superinteressante during the first half of 2012 (January 1st 2012/July 30th 2012). It's intented to observe how scientific utterances have been disclosed within the social media like blogs, official sites and especially on Facebook pages. We'll use theoretical and methodological concepts elaborated by Bakhtin Circle, in particular: dialogical relationship, genres, spheres of human activity, author and ideology. Therefore, the goal is to ascertain how hypertextuality, verbal-visual resources and interaction with other network users can influence the content of the utterance published on the pages of scientific vulgarization on Facebook. In a second stage of analysis, the goal is to verify the specificity of certain features of scientific social networks compared to other traditional ways of dissemination of science: television, magazine, newspaper, etc. It is hoped that as a result there will be an alternation of content, style and compositional form similar to what happens in the three magazines of these institutions. It is intended to observe questions related to genres such as authorship, the compositional form and style of utterances posted. In addition to these factors, the use or absence of quoted speech, references of other websites and blogs will be one of the indexes for checking in what ways scientific utterances are used in scientific dissemination on Facebook.
