Social-networking habits of library users

The following report provides -according to the OCLC website - "insights into the values and social-networking habits of library users". With it's 280 pages it looks perfect reading stuff for Christmas.

For me 2008 will be the year of the social networks.
For Europe and the Netherlands it will become clearer how developments will go. Will one or two stick out? Will new ones arise? Will the interoperability with OpenSocial really take off? Will our Dutch Hyves change into a more serious network or ...?

This report tells you how the situation is right now based on a survey (by Harris Interactive on behalf of OCLC) of the general public from six countries—Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States—and of library directors from the U.S.
