    Social sites help teenagers stay in touch with friends, says research
    More than half of all net-using American teenagers use social networking sites, research suggests.
    The study for the Pew Internet Project involved 935 teenagers and found 55% of American youths aged 12-17 had accounts at sites such as MySpace and Facebook.

    It found that the sites were more popular with older teenage girls who tend to use them to keep in touch with their existing friends.

    By contrast, boys were much more likely to use the sites to find new friends.
