Until very recently, access to Facebook was restricted to college
students. It was, in other words, restricted to the privileged class.
Why would it be a surprise - or even news - to now discover that
Facebook is the realm of the privileged class?
That's like the dramatic discovery that most people a white-only golf
clubs are white.
Not to sound too cynical, but really now...
