***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi Justin, there are several recent papers on this broad topic. For instance, the special issue of JCMC of last fall editored by Nicole Ellison and danah boyd was about social network sites. Maybe also my paper at the upcoming ECIS on this topic is helpful for you. (Schaefer, C. 2008. Motivations and usage patterns on social network sites. 16th European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS)). It may be helpful to be a bit more specific about which direction or angle you are looking for to provide further pointers. Best, Cora ---- Dipl.-Psych.
