Social Networking – here to stay

Posted by jerry on March 4th, 2007 — Posted in Journal, New media, Technology

I would have to agree with Henry Jenkins where he notes in his video interview that social networking is here to stay – irrespective of whether it’s YouTube, Myspace or the new leading space FaceBook. Jenkins makes the point that as new young people join online spaces, they want to be in a space that’s not inhabited by their older brothers – making MySpace “so 20 minutes ago”.

Yes, isn’t Henry Jenkins just so spot on! At one stage I wasn’t sure I liked Henry because ages ago he called bloggers “cockroaches” in one infamous talk he gave. But I have to say that since he got his own blog I’ve been a faithful fan of all his work!
