Facebook is for preppies

On the Myspace vs. Facebook front, I just finished
reading an interesting academic, or possibly pseudo-
academic, essay about the two social networking sites
and the cultural and socio-economic issues that seem
to determine whether an individual is more likely to
use FB or its ersatz rival, Myspace. The researcher
suggests that Facebook users tend to be both a little
older and more educated. Or, in the vernacular of her
teenage subjects, "preppies."
