Can MySpace Be Good for Teens?

As teens continue to flock to sites like MySpace, and the backlash from parents and the media fades, it’s time to take a fresh look at .

The good …
Teens, typically sensitive to peer judgments, often use to experiment with their self-image by creating and constantly updating their profiles. “Young people create virtual representations of themselves and hang out with their friends’ virtual representations,” says Hinduja. “They’re able to share with each other through this functionality despite being in different locations.”

… the bad …
Just as some experts extol the virtues of social networking sites and online communities, others aren’t having any of it. Bill Joy, cofounder of Sun Microsystems, disputed this idea in a recent issue of The Atlantic Monthly: “If I was competing with the United States, I would love to have the students I was competing with spending their time on this kind of crap,” he says. “[P]eople are fooling themselves that they’re being creative in these spaces.”

… and the ugly.
The conflict between youth and adults over social networking has its source in two characteristics. Adults are uncomfortable with a medium that they didn’t grow up with. And youth are in denial that their blogs, postings and photos are public.
