Hangin’ Out Online: Kids on the Web May 5, 2006

Posted by Noah Carter in myspace, social networking, web culture.

myspace logo1.pngLast night I gave a talk in Southampton, NY at the Rogers Memorial Library, entitled: "Hanging Out Online: What are our kids doing on the Web?" Many thanks to Penny Wright of RML who organized the event, and to all those who attended. The presentation is available here for those interested.

The focus of the talk was Online Social Networks (MySpace primarily). In retrospect I should have devoted more time to Instant Messaging and Online Gaming (ie: runescape), both of which present unique (and similar) risks and rewards for kids online. More to follow on that in future postings – check back soon…
