ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study which examined gender clustering in a complete network of teenagers by using a social network approach. The advantages of using increasingly sophisticated social network techniques are illustrated and the process of clustering which takes place in teenagers' networks is explained through social selection models within the ERGM framework and clustering co-efficients. The study shows that males make more friends and form larger clusters than females.
