In this respect Akrich (1992) enrols the metaphor of a film as such arrangements are characterised as putting forward a script which brings with it a preferred reading (the designer’s 30 Appropriating Social Networking Sites reading) for the user. Of course, Akrich acknowledges these preferred readings may be adapted, edited or indeed rewritten. In a similar vein, Woolgar (1991) discussed designers’ attempts to configure the user and how this might constrain appropriation though this position has been subject to critique as overemphasising the power of designers (Wajcman 1991, Berg and Lie 1995, Oudshoorn 1999, Mackay et al.
