A study has revealed that there is a class divide among the teenagers that use social networking sites in America. The six month study found that the teenagers using facebook were more likely to attend college and came from wealthier homes while users of myspace.com tended to get a job after finishing high school. The study was done by Danah Boyd, a PhD student at UC Berkeley, who interviewed many users of the social networking sites. In a draft of the research, Boyd found that “class” was hard to define because it did not map directly onto income but had more to do with social life and networking.
