The site removed "Random Play" and "Whatever I Can Get" from the options of what members were "Looking For"—to be replaced by "Networking."

Charles Petersen, In the World of Facebook, in the 25 Feb 2010 issue of the New York Review of Books, speaking on the evolution of the social networking site Facebook.

Petersen's piece is interesting for its exploration of class (with a shout out to Danah Boyd's seminal piece), exclusivity, and the social network as an architectural space.
