“Facebook more important than family”

In an interesting (if not necessarily enormously scientific) survey conducted for National Family Week in the UK, 28% of 8-15 year-olds cited social networking sites as the most important thing to them. Such sites appear to be more important for girls than boys. The suggestion is that parents underestimate the  importance of such sites. So far, links are only to the press release produced by NFW, but I will post a link to the original survey as and when it appears.
