Dave,

Thanks for pointing to us, but I'm not sure that the Pew Internet
Project's latest work on teens would necessarily fit the bill. While we
may have looked at some of the components that facilitate the
creation/expansion of social networks (IM, txt, blogs, etc) we didn't do
much research into the networks themselves. Probably the most relevant
point from our recent work would be that two-thirds of online teens who
read blogs (blog readers are about 2 in 5 of all online teens) say they
only read the blogs of people that they know, a finding that suggests
that teens may use blogs to form and reinforce social relationships. But
that's as far as we go in our work.

Still, for those who are interested in our finding on communication
tools, our two most relevant recent reports would be:

Teens and Technology:

Teens Content Creators and Consumers:
http://www.pewinternet.org/PPF/r/166/report_display.asp


Best,

Amanda

didn't the pew organization look into this when they were studying
online habits of teenagers (im networks, email, blogging,
socialization)....? not sure if that's a red herring, but hopefully
it will help...
