Danah Boyd writes: “Social network sites (SNSes) like MySpace, Facebook, and Bebo are ubiquitous and todays youth are spending a great deal of time using these sites to access public life. How is public life shaped by social technology? How are the properties of mediated publics, like social network sites, different from unmediated publics? This article seeks to explore the social dynamics of mediated public life in order to help educators understand their role in socialising todays youth.”
