Summary/Abstract: The paper argues for the social constructedness of emotions, more particularly in the new media environment characterized by the overproduction of information. The typology of mass-produced emotions will be reduced to three fi gures that will permit to analyze the phenomenon from different perspectives: the secret, the body, the image. I will dwell on the rising speed of the emotions, their instability, and their capacity to participate to different, often contradictory personal and political constellations. Finally I will try to refl ect on the challenges of an emotion-dominated democracy today.
