New arguments found ground after the revolution of Gutenberg and importance of reading being elevated in comparison to addressing, delivering original hand writings to masses by copying (Warschauer, 2007) and after centuries, reaching the point of electronic literacy with many innovations. These arguments reached a point suggesting that electronic literacy has also reached its “end”. Can the question “is history backtracking in the new millennium” as suggested by Eco (2012) can help us while seeking the answer for the question “what comes after electronic literacy?” In this study, societies that are yet to experience electronic literacy shall be evaluated with a critical perspective under the scope of the example of Turkey, along with new variations that may come about after electronic literacy.
