Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Youth Online chronicles the stories of young people from several countries - the US, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, and Holland - and their interactions in online communities over a seven-year period. It examines how young people construct their identities in various social contexts: social, fantasy, role-playing; and for various social purposes: leadership, learning, power, rebellion and romance. It explores the ways youth are deploying both visual and literary cues to develop a full sense of presence online and to effectively communicate with their peers. Using methods of textual, visual, and socio-psychological analysis, this book illuminates the ways in which young people are making sense of their own identities and their place within broader communities.

Includes bibliographical references (p. [225]-232) and index.

The virtual self : authoring identity -- Youth online : five young people share their stories -- Youth participation : learning and growth in the forum -- Youth identities : narratives of self in the avatar -- Youth literacies : understanding self through role-playing the other -- Youth socialization : the seamlessness of online and offline worlds -- Conclusion : literacies and identites in the digital age.
