I have a basic theory. I think the longer you are on xanga, the more difficult it is to be open about yourself.
I think one of the appeals of a blog is that a person can open up. In fact, many times people will share that they can be more transparent on xanga than they can be with their real life friends.
But I think that once people get to know people on xanga, that they begin to do what they do in real life. They start to concern themselves with what others think. So they start editing their site and even their emotions.
Are you able to be totally open about your feelings on xanga?
