Dear Professor Wellman,

I have selected the following references from my Masters thesis, which was 
based on an Australian study on the relationship of loneliness and social 
anxiety with children's and adolescents' online communication:

Bryant, J. A., Sanders-Jackson, A., & Smallwood, A. M. K. (2006). IMing, 
text messaging, and adolescent social networks. Journal of Computer-Mediated 
Communication, 11, 577-592.

Heim, J., Brandtzæg, P. B., Kaare, B. H., Endestad, T., & Torgersen, L. 
(2007). Children's usage of media technologies and psychosocial factors. New 
Media & Society, 9, 425-454.

Leung, L. (2007). Stressful life events, motives for Internet use, and 
social support among digital kids. CyberPsychology & Behavior, 10, 204-214.

Livingstone, S., & Helsper, E. (2007). Gradations in digital inclusion: 
Children, young people and the digital divide. New Media & Society, 9, 

Valkenburg, P. M., & Peter, J. (2007). Preadolescents' and adolescents' 
online communication and their closeness to friends. Developmental 
Psychology, 43, 267-277.

I hope such literature can still be of assistance, as it does not 
specifically addresses the attitudes.

Kind regards,
