Roundtable on recent findings and methods used in international social networking research

Earlier in October, Amanda Lenhart participated in a round table discussion on online social networks at the Association of Internet Researchers Annual Conference in Copenhagen. The discussion, which also included scholars Nancy Baym, Lewis Goodings, Malene Larsen, Raquel Recuero, Jan Schmidt and Daniel Skog, looked at recent research as well as a conversation about effective research methods and challenges to research presented by the networks. Over the course of the discussion, Amanda also previews some forthcoming Pew Internet data on adult use of online social networks.

The 90 minute round table was audio recorded (thanks to Thies Willem Bottcher). Note for those who choose to listen to the unedited recording – the round table discussion begins about 5 minutes into the audio file.
