              This book investigates Web 2.0 cyberleisure space by drawing parallels to another leisure space that shares its rhetoric of being open, democratic, and free for all: the urban park. It bridges the urban with the digital commons, revealing fresh insights on corporatization, privat...ization and democratization of new media spaces.

              Positing social networking sites as virtual leisure spaces, this book argues that the properties of these sites are by no means novel, but are rooted in historical, economic, social, and cultural spaces, tied to offline practices, and marked by similar political struggles.
