As for the article's points, there is truth to it. I also don't think they are putting down low income people as much as they are making fun of wannabes who dream of being like Paris Hilton or Britney Spears. You can write the same article about "Tweetering" too (ain't that what a bird does, among other things?). I can see why the famous do it (usually to massage their ego), but why the everyday Joe? I get a kick out of these kids today who dream of being on the level of someone famous just by having Facebook or Twitter. Jeez 'o friggin' Pete! Sorry don't mean to offend those of you who participate in those things, as many of my friends do so. If you really get something out of it by networking with real friends and family, that's fine. I just think there is a huge number of people who do it to get noticed in this celebrity culture we're in today.
