Social networking

List of Libraries using MySpace - great place for library teens to check out library things but date of modification was 2006. 'Recent changes' was the only updated section on the navigation box. Nothing in 'Current events'. - I didn't like this site.

Libraries get social - a positive site. Many suggestions on how to get teens actively involved in their library. - One suggestion is a site where the teens can actively plan the site and update it as they wish within the online safety guidelines.

They can also set up a 'Library friends' page or a 'My Space' account.

A great sociable site for a teenager who is not able to physically meet other teenagers at a library, for whatever reason, but is able to connect through their computer.

I only wish this sort of socialising was around when I was a teenager!!!
