Abstract

Social networking web sites are popular among adolescents and may represent a new venue for conducting adolescent health research. Conducting research by using social networking web sites raises several concerns, including the social value of this research, fair subject selection, confidentiality, privacy, and informed consent. Addressing each of these concerns, we offer an ethical framework to promote informed and appropriate decisions.
