Undertake and publish research on livejournal usage

Title
Undertake and publish research on livejournal usage

Short, concise description of the idea
I would like to see some research undertaken on who uses LJ, how it is used, types of social network

Full description of the idea
This could be done by sampling a few thousand random, but active journals. Questionnaires could be issued to determine how/why people post, select friends, etc. Information could be automatically obtained on friends numbers, community membership, post/comment frequency.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Would enable development to be targetted better for existing users
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Time consuming to develop
  • Privacy issues
  • Sample bias(not all would respond)
