Ofcom report on Social Networking
Social Networking : a quantitative and qualitative research report into attitudes, behaviours and use, found "that just over one fifth (22%) of adult internet users aged 16+ and almost half (49%) of children aged 8-17 who use the internet have set up their own profile on a social networking site.For adults, the likelihood of setting up a profile is highest among 16-24 year olds (54%) and decreases with age." Much concern over cavalier or ignorant behaviour of privacy issues when using the sites. BBC News site has a good summary. Full document here.
