has anyone done any research on the habbo.com phenomenon or others like 
it?  It is a "safe site" for kids 13-18 years old where they create 
avatar characters and rooms for them, play games and chat.

If anyone has information about other sites like this (I'm currently 
looking into yub.com) or any information about articles on social 
networking that take place in these kinds of spaces, I would love to 
hear it.

I could probably also use references that survey children's computer 
use and studies of gendered behavior online.

thank you all so much for this great list.
