Not selling out: Teens live in commercial online spaces because that's their only option -
danah boyd points out that when kids conduct their social lives in commercial spaces, it’s not because they don’t care about selling out; it’s because they have no other option: “In a world where they have limited physical mobility and few places to go, they’re deeply appreciative of any space that will accept them.” boyd’s extensive fieldwork with teens (documented in her must-read book It’s Complicated) backstops her opinion.
Sorry for the boingboing, but well worth the read.
