More from Danah Boyd on MySpace. "In thinking about Friendship practices on social network sites, it is crucial to evaluate them on their own terms, recognizing the role of technology and social navigation rather than simply viewing them as an extension of offline friendship." This shouldn't be a deep insight, but I guess there's no end to people who want simply to transfer properties of real world friendships to online friendsters.
