So, one of that kind of topics is written cell phone messages (sms’s). In terms of point of views generated by old understanding of ‘folk’ or new approaches, these messages have constituted one of the new and original titles of folklore. This cultural component emerged in last decade of twentieth century and rapidly widened and grown, however it seems like totally new, is the transformed shape of old traditional components in terms of some issues. The messages which have rapidly widened increased and became stereotyped, have had so significant data about our aesthetics conception and cultural codes in their constitutions.
