digital ghetto

Online jargon that refers to the community of MySpace as opposed to Facebook.

Coined by social networking scholar Danah Boyd in a book chapter as reported by MIT's Technology Review, she theorizes that people fled MySpace first because they got scared of it, eventually coming to see it as a sort of "digital ghetto" filled with creepy spammers, weirdo goth kids and people of color, as opposed to the predominantly white audience on Facebook.
