    What the reporter should have said in her conclusion: "Race is connected with education because the majority of whites are more educated and prefer sites of a more classic and professional manner. Hispanics are generally less educated and more prone to making their pages have gang references and annoying reggaetón in the background. Asians are so special they have to create their own sites in order to discuss how much better they are than anyone else" :p

    There are a lot of Asians on Xanga, it's scary. In fact, not even Asians, but AZNs.:o

    They seem to be going downhill just as bad as Europeans.

    Nothing you can take serious because you have to consider the history of all those sites. Friendster and Xanga have simply gained popularity in particular populations and spread through them. You cannot find all Asians there but mainly people from some countries and languages. Myspace has always been a kind of internet side for everybody without needing to be educated or without the stigma of being a nerd so all the "cool" people have their sites there. Facebook,however, used to be exclusively for university students and spread among them aswell.

    While education may play a role, I don't see this as the main factor. Main factors would be shear preference and the fact that people do actually network within their own kind of ethnic group.
