Keywords: postmodern society | public space | private space.

The Habermasian theoretical perspective offers, in the literature, a detailed image of the “public sphere” concept signification. Being applied, over the years, in issues related to media theories too (globalisation, consumerism, democracy), the concept of “public sphere” has undergone radical changes due, mainly, to the emergence and convergence of electronic media. In this respect, this article does nothing more than to describe and analyze, in a realistic way, the public space, the mechanisms involved in it, as well the interplay of the public space with the private one. We could say that this dissolution of the public space is one of the major consequences of postmodernism.
