This has been covered before, of course, but it’s always good to see more research on the subject. The MacArthur Foundation has just released Mizuko Ito’s latest study about online socializing, and found that it’s an important and healthy part of youth communications these days, and politicians and parents who freak out over the amount of time kids spend chatting with each other online are overreacting. Hopefully, with more studies like this, we can get politicians to stop trying to ban social networks in school, and recognize that it can be a healthy part of the way kids communicate.
