Hi All,

I'm writing a paper on the the relationship between the use of different 
information and communication technologies and the diversity of peoples 
social networks. I have data from 300+ interviews with the residents of 
four Boston neighborhoods. I would be interested in any references that 
you might have on other studies that have looked at the impact of 
Internet, phone, or television use on the diversity of social networks.
