The interest in the subject first came from the observation of the intense linguistic variety that is verified in the internet by users of all kinds in diverse media, especially in the site of relationships Facebook, thus starting from the importance between the relations between lexicon, society and cyberculture. Thus, the purpose of this study is to describe and analyze borrowed English-based neologisms (which contain at least one English-language morpheme in its composition) that have their occurrence verified in one of the indicated social networks. For this, it is anchored theoretically in the domains of lexical studies, since part of the premise that neology is not grammar, neology is lexical, lexical phenomenon, more specifically, is lexical expansion. This paper is based on Barbosa (1990), Biderman (1996), Nebot (2001), Welker (2004) Camacho (2008), Basílio (2011), Siqueira (2014, 2015) to review concepts and definitions of Lexicology, lexical, lexical unit, in the sense of revising and redirecting conceptions, because within the scope of the ability to create words by the speaker, now in network, linguistic phenomena occur at levels as a whole, depending on the motivation or even the context: morphological, syntactic , semantic, pragmatic. A priori, this study assumes that the lexicon is probably the aggregator of those grammatical aspects that are limited to neologisms, whether simple words or not. The methodology consists of the combination of procedures that have in the methods of qualitative approach their support. Thus, it seeks to combine methods that evidence the internet as "culture", as "cultural artifact", with some steps of the ethnographic research carried out for the Internet environment, andsome procedures of netnography, searching for data that are yet to emerge, expressions brand new in a support also relatively new if it is considered that the internet can be both object of research and place of research as well as the research tool.
