Classy Facebook

I just read a smashing little article in todays Guardian that flagged up social networking websites increasingly splitting along class lines, this according to Danah Boyd (the internet sociologist and researcher at the University of California). The article has a great quote:
"A month ago, the military banned 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."
And Facebook has taken off of late (especially in my immediate social circle) faster than greased weasel shit off a highly chromed shovel. Good on Zuckerberg. Something useful, addictive, and a bloody grand marketing tool for us.

Brace for widgets.
