I am a graduate student at the University of California, Irvine, currently
working on a project about use of new media (SNS, games, video production,
etc.) amongst youth.

I was wondering if someone could point me to any studies on American youth's
differential use (by gender, race, SES etc.) of new media.

Thank you for your time,
