Abstract

While social network sites share main aims of online communication and interaction, at the same time they vary according to sites in terms of main target and usage regulation. The aim of this study is to investigate the internet usage of students and also to learn which social network sites are preferred by the participants. The volunteer participant of this study consists of 52 undergraduate students. Literature survey was used to gather general information about background of the study and questionnaire was used to collect data and to find out the opinions of students about preferring social network sites. Also, frequency and percentage methods were used during the analysis process. The results of the study show that Live Spaces and Facebook social network sites are preferred by the participants. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
