Social networking services: joys and drawbacks

The Mannerheim League for Child Welfare (MLL) carried out a wide-ranging inquiry of adolescents’ experiences of Internet’s photo galleries. Data was collected in the spring of 2006 in three photo galleries: IRC-Galleria, Kuvake.net and ii2.org. All together, 11 300 adolescents aged 12–17-years answered the questionnaire within a couple of days. Two thirds of the respondents were girls, and this also represents the sex distribution of the photo gallery users.
