Klasspreferenser i sociala nätverks-sajter

"A month ago, the [US] military banned [its' personnel from using] MySpace but not Facebook. This was a very interesting move because there's a division, even in the military. Soldiers are on MySpace; officers are on Facebook."
Sociala nätverks-sajter attraherar olika sociala grupper - åtminstone i USA, hävdar Danah Boyd vid University of California i essän Viewing American class divisions through Facebook and MySpace
"Facebook users 'tend to come from families who emphasise education and going to college. They are primarily white, but not exclusively'. MySpace, meanwhile, 'is still home for Latino and Hispanic teens, immigrant teens' as well as 'other kids who didn't play into the dominant high school popularity paradigm'.
