Fred Stutzman reports on Student Data Sharing

Fred Stutzman has been studying the AMAZING amount of information that high school and college students give away to the social networking site Facebook. It’s a website like Friendster that is only for students and is divided into areas for each university. (For example the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.) This podcast is a recording of his presentation titled, “An Evaluation of Identity Sharing in Social Networking Communities” aka The Facebook Talk. Here is Fred’s blog post about his studies on the Ibiblio blog Notes from the ‘Lab. Check out the amazing things he has learned from analyzing this data. Ah… the power of metadata.
