Social Networking

1.  An article published by the New York Times. Focuses primarily on Cisco’s acquisition of Tribe.net. Tribet.net creators insisted that social networking sites should be able to form to one’s own interests and that Facebook and MySpace severely limit customization.

2. An article published by The Atlantic. This was a really thought provoking article for me. It brings up the possibility that instead of the internet connecting everyone, it’s just connecting the same people in a different way. I really recommend this for everyone.

3. Not exactly the most professional article. None the less I felt somewhat enlightened after reading the article and it helped me draw more connections to class in order to understand the business side of emerging media.
