These 2 social websites are blocked at our school, and going by the length of time my kids would like to spend on them I know why they are blocked (pity I cant block these sites at home- I may get to the computer a bit more often)
I asked my kids what site they prefered and they were 50/50. One prefers facebook as more of his friends are on it, my other son likes my space. Alot of my friends (who are 30+) seem to favour facebook. Will I be creating my own "space" probably not in the immediate future I just get excited to get on the computer to check my e-mails.
I must admit I sometimes wonder if we posted their over-due library books on myspace and facebook we actually may get them back!!!!
I can see why libraries etc use this tool and like everything it has its place when used in the right context.
