Social networking article

Really interesting article on friends and Friends and Friending in social networking sites:

http://www.firstmonday.org/issues/issue11_12/boyd/index.html

It's from First Monday, which is an academic library science journal, so it's somewhat densely written. Still well worth reading I think. The focus is on Friendster and MySpace, but a lot of the dynamics discussed are very familiar. There is mention of a similar paper about LJ, which I would love to read. Doesn't seem to be available online, though; I'll poke around a bit.
