Viewing American class divisions through Facebook and MySpace.
By Danah Boyd.
"Over the last six months, I've noticed an increasing number of press
articles about how high school teens are leaving MySpace for Facebook.
That's only partially true. There is indeed a change taking place, but
it's not a shift so much as a fragmentation. Until recently, American
teenagers were flocking to MySpace. The picture is now being blurred.
Some teens are flocking to MySpace. And some teens are flocking to
Facebook. Who goes where gets kinda sticky... probably because it seems
to primarily have to do with socio-economic class."
