what is your question?
What characterizes these online communities in which an increasing number of us are spending our time? Social networking sites have a peculiar psychogeography. As researchers at the Pew project have noted, the proto-social networking sites of a decade ago used metaphors of place to organize their members: people were linked through virtual cities, communities, and homepages…By contrast, today’s social networking sites organize themselves around metaphors of the person, with individual profiles that list hobbies and interests. As a result, one’s entrée into this world generally isn’t through a virtual neighborhood or community but through the revelation of personal information. And unlike a neighborhood, where one usually has a general knowledge of others who live in the area, social networking sites are gatherings of deracinated individuals, none of whose personal boastings and musings are necessarily trustworthy. Choose which group of questions Rosen asks in her article. Are online friendships and real-life friendships the same? Is social networking about friendship or self-promotion? Are people who use the Internet considered more intelligent than people who don't? Should schools require computer literacy courses? Are there dangerous ideas available online that some people shouldn't see? Do people who see these ideas get influenced by them? Are there ways to improve artificial intelligence so it goes beyond the human brain? Would this be a good thing?
What do you think the answer is?

"Social rules and norms are not merely the strait-laced conceits of a bygone era; they serve a protective function. I know a young woman – attractive, intelligent, and well-spoken – who, like many other people in their twenties, joined Facebook as a college student when it launched. When she and her boyfriend got engaged, they both updated their relationship status to "Engaged" on their profiles and friends posted congratulatory messages on her Wall. But then they broke off the engagement. And a funny thing happened. Although she had already told a few friends and family members that the relationship was over, her ex decided to make it official in a very twenty-first century way: he changed his status on his profile from "Engaged" to "Single." Facebook immediately sent out a feed to every one of their mutual "friends" announcing the news, "Mr. X and Ms. Y are no longer in a relationship," complete with an icon of a broken heart. When I asked the young woman how she felt about this, she said that although she assumed her friends and acquaintances would eventually hear the news, there was something disconcerting about the fact that everyone found out about it instantaneously; and since the message came from Facebook, rather than in a face-to-face exchange initiated by her, it was devoid of context – save for a helpful notation of the time and that tacky little heart."
