For decades, reception studies have ex-plored the readings that audiences have from different perspectives towards fictional and non fictional narratives. In this research, we chose two case studies to observe Facebook user’s participation in the fanpages of @HouseofCardsLatinoamerica and @BlackMirrorMexico. A total of 111,764 comments were downloaded, with the objective of analyzing the interactions amongst followers of the publications. Conclusions show that while the majority of the comments are simple (e.g. tags to other users), we can also find the establishment of parasocial relationship with characters, comparisons of fictional narrative with the user’s realities, or reflections on social problems with which followers identify with.
