some of my students may – or may not?! – be thrilled to know that academic interest has been tweaked. Copied from the air-l Digest, Vol 16, Issue 11:
Searches of the papers at AoIR conferences and the journal indexes come up empty. Who is doing research on the social networkingwebsites, such as Facebook, Myspace, XuQa, Tagworld, Catch-27, etc.???
Mark D. Johns, Ph.D.
Names that spring immediately to mind are Danah Boyd, Lori Kendall
and Terri Senft, and I hope they’ll post some favorite references of
theirs on the topic as well… hint hint.
