[en] This article explores the ideological consequences of recent language policy changes in the
Balearic Islands, where Catalan and Castilian are the official languages. It will approach the
intersection between minoritized language contexts and ideologies of standardization,
focusing on negotiations of linguistic authority and linguistic differentiation at the individual
level. In the frame of intense language ideological debates in the archipelago, I examine the
interactions between members of two large Facebook communities to show how the ideological
frame shifts toward one in which the relationship between Balearic varieties and the Catalan
standard becomes central, and in which Castilian is only implicitly addressed.
