Abstract : The use of social media by Africans and African diasporas have led to the creation of "Facebook groups" identified as ethnic groups. These spaces of community exchanges allow the observation of original modalities of preservation of linguistic diversity mutations in the ethnic belonging. On one hand we are witnessing the encoding of languages that were not usually written, contributing to their current writing use, to the transmission of this competence and literary heritage, to its unification and homogenization. On the other hand, these new communication registers provoke profound changes in the status of these languages and have led to reconcile and rethink the family of mutual understanding languages as an ethnic group in its own.
