the significance of MySpace. Many-to-Many:: “While MySpace has skyrocketed to success beyond any of the other social technologies on the web, too few folks in the industry talk about it, participate in it or otherwise pay attention to itâ€¦. mostly because itâ€™s particularly populated by teens, musicians and other folks who are nowhere near connected to the tech industry. Much of whatâ€™s discussed is the culture of fear put forward by the mass media. This is quite unfortunate because thereâ€™s a lot of interesting stuff going on there.
At AAAS this week, i had the opportunity to present the first phase of my findings in a talk called Identity Production in a Networked Culture. If you want insight into what teens are doing on MySpace and why, check it out.”
