We were talking about Facebook on LS chat, and someone said that the thought Facebook was UK/EU and MySpace was America, and then I mentioned that the Facebook/MySpace divide was actually more along class lines, at one point, as least according to some research.

I do agree. The author now currently works at the "Harvard Berkman Center for Internet and Society" (something like that), and she's written some follow up articles in that time.

I wasn't posting this to be "current" - I was posting this to show that I wasn't trying to be insulting or elitist.

Anyways I don't think it's true anymore.
