How Does Surveillance Frame Social Networking Sites?
The research questions addressed in Social Networking Sites and the Surveillance Society by Christian Fuch are:
How does economic and political surveillance frame social networking site usage?
How knowledgeable are students about surveillance in society?
How critical are students about the potential surveillance by state and corporation?
How does the degree of knowledge about surveillance and the degree of critical consciousness on surveillance influence the usage of social networking sites?
The report is a case study of student usage of studiVZ, Facebook, and MySpace. Hat tip to beSpacific. [JH]
