Summary/Abstract: The text discusses the theory of Marc Augé’s non-places. In this article the authorfocuses on the relation between non-places and identity, and answers the question of to whatextent it is possible to transform non-places to places – one of the Augé’s theses is that thereare close relations between these two categories. According to the author, this change canbe made thanks to the external media. The websites such as Facebook and YouTube, allowa symbolic transformation of a status of non-places, their rearrangement. In the study theauthor also proposes to expand Augé’s dictionary to include a category of analgetic placesand non-places of affect.
