New Pew study looks at digital neighborhood tools

I’ve only skimmed the new Pew report by Aaron Smith, Neighbors Online.  Steven Clift posted a thorough write-up of it…

According to the just released Neighbors Online report from Pew Internet and American Life, 27% of American adult Internet users (or 20% of adults overall) use “digital tools to talk to their neighbors and keep informed about community issues.”

This is an amazing number and a great starting point.
