Hello James,

Geert Lovink, media theorist and one of our teachers/ researchers at the
University of Amsterdam, has written an article about MySpace:

Geert Lovink. Escaping the Control Loops. Understanding MySpace.

In this article Geert has the following references:

Danah Boyd. Friend, Friendsters, Top 8: Writing Community into being on
social network sites.
http://www.firstmonday.org/issues/issue11_12/boyd/index.html

Hopefully this is what you where looking for?

kind regards,

Heleen van der Klink
