Another great danah boyd essay. “Hanging out on Friendster is like hanging out in a super clean police state where you can’t chew gum let alone goof around and you’re told exactly how to speak to others. Hanging out on MySpace is more like hanging out in a graffiti park with fellow goofballs while your favorite band is playing.”
I know, I know, it’s the most obvious joke possible given the band name. The execution (sic) still made me laugh.
