Title: Friends-lists and public/private online spaces

Status: not this year

Proposed by: Cathy Cupitt


What are they, how do the work, what about the name? How do you judge what's popular in virtual terms? Backtracking, LJ Toys, hit counters. The rise of MySpace and FaceBook, versus blogs and LJ. Plus! Is there such a thing as private space online? Is it always okay to link to a public post? Why do people choose pseudonyms, and what meanings do they have in online spaces? Are the used in the same way as traditional pennames. What happens when someone's "outed"?

No panellists - not this year.

Room Notes:
