  2. 2. What was the idea behind the creation of MySpace?<br />Communicating with friends<br />Community<br />Content (music, culture, video)<br />Culture<br />Discovery<br />Network<br />
  3. 3. How is Facebook different from MySpace?<br />By CLASS: class in the US was more about social life and networks - how people define themselves and who they define themselves with. (societal values)<br />The research suggests those using Facebook come from wealthier homes and are more likely to attend college. <br />By contrast, MySpace users tend to get a job after finishing high school rather than continue their education. (geeks, freaks, or queers)<br />
  4. 4. Have you used MySpace or Facebook, and if so, how often? What is your experience?<br />Generally, we are not MySpace fans. Facebook is more commonly used. Even though the privacy settings are “user friendly,” some people still find it to be intrusive.<br />MySpace was more popular in the United States (localized for US) while Facebook was more used globally.<br />
  5. 5. Do you think Twitter will overtake Facebook as the most popular social networking platform in the UAE? Explain.<br />Yes, because it is more updated and more constant especially now that there are mobile applications available. Content is also more timely.<br />Twitter and Facebook have similar features but Twitter has the greater advantage because it is constantly updated in comparison.<br />Facebook is more cluttered so the content might get lost.<br />Twitter makes interaction more accessible and approachable. (We can follow whoever we want to).<br />
  6. 6. The end<br />
