Visualization of an Individual's Location in a Social Networking Site (Friendster)

youth in social networks (j. heer & d.boyd)

This site offers:

youth's own stories about their experiences with cell phones, MSN and Internet

research resources on how children and youth use, experience, feel and think about ICT and some general resources on implications of ICT use

I have collected these stories and resources during my own M.A./Ph.D. research with Youth, exploring "how the Internet matters to youth" at the University of Victoria, Canada, 1997-2007. For links to my research click on about the site and presentations and publications.
