I have a softspot for any research on social networking software. This paper examines whats so "cool" about MySpace that gets teens to stick around.

The dynamics of a country full of one child policy tech savvy Chinese teens has made MSN Spaces in China quite a fast growth vehicle as well. Although the cultural and economic context is different, teenagers are teenagers regardless of what country they're in.  Games, Music, Dating....all same same.
