In these last 2 weeks of the Unit we are really focusing on the production of our research portfolios and I have finally decided on an overall question which covers all my research: How has Myspace created new opportunites for self-representation? I think that’s pretty clear and allows me the scope to talk about all […](image)

Last Thursday Andrea Rota spoke to us about issues of copyright and creative commons. As a result we all added a Creative Commons license to our blogs to protect our ideas without restricting their use for others research.

Over the Easter break i created a FaceBook account all in the name of social networking research and have sadly become slightly adddicted. While Myspace is customisable via HTML and focused on creating personality within pages, FaceBook has taken the opposite route with it’s standard, non-editable profiles.

While unrelated to my own project I found this article in the Daily Telegraph today and found it relevant to the ideas of blogging and Web 2.0. There were 2 articles in the paper, both focusing on the difference in opinion over proposed ‘code of conduct’ that should be used to regulate the blogging community. […](image)

There has been a gap in my postings, but rest assured I have been working hard to combine all my ideas and findings into a presentation to be given tomorrow.

After showing my research in progress to the group I’m now aware that I have found a large amount of information covering a range of ideas all focusing around the idea of online representation and identity construction.

The comments people have proivided are very insightful and offer good explanations to the photographs.

These articles talk about the importance of the self portrait as a form of representation online, and how and why people use certain photographs to show their personality to others.

In order to fully engage with my project and understand social networking sites, I must first understand Web 2.0 and it’s emergening practices and concepts.
