The Politics Of MySpace (Or What Social Networks Are Really About)
What if we’re wrong?
We spend a lot of time defending the past.
One of the things a lot of new media people believe is that folks join social networks to meet more people.
That we all want to connect.
That we are adding friends like crazy.
But wait a minute.
Are we really IM’ing all of our MySpace friends?
Do you really communicate with more people now or do you just communicate with some of your old friends less?
Maybe as things get more marginal so does our communication.
Maybe all the kids on MySpace aren’t looking for more friends
Maybe they are just looking for one.Explore posts in the same categories: cell phones, connect, friends, future, MySpace, Neal Adams, new media, past, Superman, war
