Xanga

Xanga (ZANG-uh) is an Internet Web host that provides its users (community) with  access to their own online diaries and journals (often called blogs). A person who belongs to the Xanga community is called a "Xangan". If someone has a Web blog on Xanga, they are being referred to as "having a Xanga."  Xanga services are most popular with youth and young adults. Along with its popularity among younger people, Xanga has been mentioned in major news publications worldwide as many law enforcement agencies believe that many of the 91 percent of some 40 million users aged 13 to 29 are revealing too much personal information about themselves on Xanga journals.
