This paper is interested in citizenship education in schools when confronting the practical uses of social networks among teenagers. Citizenship education is often considered as a means of integration and social regulation. The effectiveness of such education is often assessed in terms of the quality of peace that reigns within the school. This paper explores relationships between students, especially those relationships at work in the context of social networks through image rights. Keywords: citizenship education; social contract; social networks.
