class divide: facebook v. myspace

i read a fun article about the class divide of facebook and myspace.

The goodie two shoes, jocks, athletes, or other “good” kids are now going to Facebook. These kids tend to come from families who emphasize education and going to college.

Watching it makes my brain hurt a good amount.

My Super Sweet Sixteen

Imagine a burgeoning 16-year-old whining about her pony not being alabaster white, but instead porcelain white. They then book Petey Pablo so she can grind with their boyfriend that she dumps during the show because he was seen talking to and flirting with another girl.

Just minutes later, she is seen getting her 2nd car, a red BMW convertible to match her white Mercedes SUV. Oh don’t forget that everyone at the party had to wear white.

E!

This entire channel is ridiculous. They produce nothing but more airplay for celebrities. E! News and the Daily 10 are essentially the same awful show that detail celebrinews for the day and one of them features Carson Daly, Jr, Ryan Seacrest.
