Stein and social status

Joel Stein's essay in Time looks at online social networking. Nothing new, and there was a similar essay in Slate also a few weeks back that targets the same ground. But this time, Stein sort of stratifies the online networking sites. Your online networking tool says a lot about you. Stein claims that Friendster is mostly Asian, hi5 is Eurotrashy and Twitter is for geeks.

Twitter is for geeks? Since when? But then again, I follow a tech update site via Twitter, which then sends me updates at 2 freaking AM. Oh yeah, must be a geeky thing then.

Yun lang naman.
