Abstract/Description

This paper presents preliminary findings on teenagers’ use of instant messaging (IM) as an example of an Internet technology. The results are quantitative, being drawn from the information held in users’ IM log files. The current purpose is to validate the proposed data collection method, and to explore the analytical possibilities it presents. This is done through the discussion of a number of graphical representations generated from the data.
