The Races tend to form Cliques on social networks.

As reported on CNN, a study performed at the University of Illinois indicates a level of racial divide in social networking sites. White students tend to prefer FaceBook while Hispanics preferred MySpace and Asians preferred Xanga or Friendster. There was no clear preference among Black students. They also found a correlation between the socio economic status of the parents and the students preferred social Network. FaceBook users tended to come from higher socio economic status with parents whom had achieved higher levels of education. All of this is interesting, but the most prolific statistic I heard in the report was this. Of all the students interviewed the number of students that had never heard of the former mentioned social networking sites was 1. That’s pretty amazing.
