PERKEL, Dan. Copy and paste literacy? literacy practices in the production of a MySpace profile. Trab. linguist. apl. [online]. 2010, vol.49, n.2, pp.493-511. ISSN 2175-764X.

Over the past several years, educators, the media, policy makers, law enforcement officials, advertisers, venture capitalists, academics, kids, teenagers, and parents-a large segment of American society as a whole-have all turned their attention to a website called MySpace2. With respect to teenagers, much of the public debate has been concerned with issues of privacy and safety. However, in this paper my interest is in teenagers' production and use of their MySpace profiles as a part of their everyday communication.

Keywords : copy and paste literacy; literacy; MySpace profile.
