Stating the Obvious

According to this report from the BBC; a PhD student at Berkeley has investigated the differences between the makeup of the user-base at Facebook and MySpace.

“Broadly, Ms Boyd found Facebook users tend to be white and come from families who are keen for children to get the most out of school and go on to college. “

I don’t have the time to read the paper, but can anyone suggest this is surprising? It wasn’t so long ago that Facebook was only for College and University students; this limitation on the initial population of Facebook would clearly have an impact on those attracted to that network. 

Social proof at it’s finest.
