Nos últimos anos, educadores, a mídia, políticos, oficiais da lei, publicitários, capitalistas de risco, acadêmicos, crianças, adolescentes e pais – um amplo segmento da sociedade americana no geral – voltaram sua atenção para um site conhecido como MySpace1 . Em relação aos adolescentes, muito do debate público tem se preocupado com questões relativas à privacidade e segurança. Contudo, neste artigo, meu interesse concentrase na produção e uso dos perfis MySpace por parte dos adolescentes na comunicação cotidiana.


Over the past several years, educators, the media, policy makers, law enforcement officials, advertisers, venture capitalists, academics, kids, teenagers, and parents–a large segment of American society as a whole–have all turned their attention to a website called MySpace2 . With respect to teenagers, much of the public debate has been concerned with issues of privacy and safety. However, in this paper my interest is in teenagers’ production and use of their MySpace profiles as a part of their everyday communication.
