About Eva Kol
I recently got my MA degree at the VU studying CIW (in my case a combination of Dutch literature, Italian and communication sciences). At the moment I'm happily working to become a Master of (New!) Media at the UvA. My thesis will be about the social networking website Hyves.


I herewith include the essay I wrote for New Media Theories, which is about location-based social networking websites. I did a small member survey by interviewing members of sites like Dodgeball, Plazes and Meetro. The many responses I received were surprisingly detailed and are still coming into my mailbox… So if you’re interested: have a look!
