Abstract:While social groups and social technologies play important roles in the lives of American high school youth, it is not well understood how these two aspects structure opportunities for civic participation and shape social boundaries. This study reports work-to-date on how group and friendship structures affect high school students’ extracurricular and civic participation. Future study phases aim at describing how social technologies, like Facebook, MySpace, instant messaging, and mobile technologies are used in friendship and extracurricular contexts, and whether social technologies affect the interrelationships between friendship structures and extracurricular participation. Expected contributions include revealing the potential of social technologies to restructure friendships and opportunities for participation from diverse youth.
