Abstract : The appropriation of information and communication technologies has led Internet users in general and particularly those living in the city of Kinshasa to deliberately live a paradox. This forces them to breathe in a digital universe that is both satisfying and disturbing. Through the analysis of a case of usurpation of the digital identity of a victim on the social network Facebook, we demonstrate how the situation of paradox in the use of digital technologies can push users, through bricolage, to an evolving spring of use and creativity
