Facebook – Documenting a Social Software Phenomenon
If you’ve been watching my bookmarks in the sidebar or through a feed, you’ll know I’ve been watching Fred Stutzman’s thoughts on Facebook, the social networking website for students. As I dig into Fred’s work, I realized this was worth a blog post and not just some links on the side.
What I like about Fred’s writing on Facebook is that he doesn’t just comment; he gets involved by advising students and faculties on how to engage a social software phenomenon while keeping in mind important things like privacy. His blog also documents the evolution of issues from the perspective of a researcher, which should be required reading for anyone managing or designing social software.
