Just had a couple of new computer science grads sitting next to me today so I took the opportunity to explore their use of social networking technologies. The results were interesting:
* neither liked MySpace as it was for “12 year olds” plus everyone could see all your stuff
* one used Facebook but now was bored with it, but found it useful to upload holiday pictures
* both preferred to actually speak with other people on their mobile phones, but did not really like SMS
This is all very interesting for me, as travelling in geeky circles it is easy to groupthink about technology.
