A lot of the rhetoric surrounding the more popular social networking sites such as FaceBook , MySpace and Bebo seems to be related to the more negative factors such as identity theft, threats to children, breahes in privacy of personal data and copyright theft.

A recent US research project (by a PhD student mind you) has reported that users of FaceBook are generally toffs from wealthier homes and are more likely to study in further/higher education than that great unwashed working class lot who like using MySpace. I used to have a MySpace , but abandoned it because FaceBook was easier to use. So it's official.
