Quick hit: What are you looking at?

September 15, 2009

A Harvard Business School study, reported by DoubleX’s Noreen Malone discovered a pattern in Facebook use:

The biggest usage categories are men looking at women they don’t know, followed by men looking at women they do know. Women look at other women they know. Overall, women receive two-thirds of all page views.
What are the consequences of such pictures being readily available and consumable? Especially since–contrary to media images of women in entertainment or fashion–these images are of people you might see at the grocery store or on the way to class? Who might live next door to you, or be drunk at the same party you are drunk at?
