study on risks of adolescent weblogging

A recently published study uses a risk and resilience framework to examine adolescent weblog use. The authors found that “surprisingly” weblogs were used to support positive behaviors to a great extent. (Not entirely sure why surprising, except in response to pervasive fear of Internet.) Haven’t read yet, but encouraged to see research on blogging come from new venues (social work, in this case). (via @halavais)
