Construction Sight: Building the Self on Facebook

by Randall Anderson

Border Crossings, June 2009, v. 28, no. 110, pp. 73-75

Randall Anderson discusses Facebook and the idea of constructing oneself through the social networking site. Anderson also describes Facebook as the kind of

"social sculpture" that artist and theorist Joesph Beuys envisioned in the 1960's - a network that does not recognize tax brackets and that could be though of as a creative work in and of itself.
