Facebook v MySpace - a class divide | The Guardian

The UK Guardian reports that in the US Facebook v MySpace - a class divide | The Guardian | Guardian Unlimited: "Social networking websites MySpace and Facebook are increasingly splitting along class lines, according to a US academic."

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".

That seems pretty obvious to me, since Facebook started in colleges, and was only opened to people without college email addresses less than a year ago.
