The Facebook project - Research & Resource

About the Facebook Project

The Facebook Project... has changed.

Originally started as a sociology research project by Jeff Ginger, a graduate student at the University of Illinois, the endeavor has expanded to include several researchers, students, librarians, and enthusiasts who all have an important interest in common: Facebook.

This website is a hub to our intellect. Our efforts are specialized and yet reflect a measure of cognitive diversity; our collective aim is to help visitors better document, understand, and employ Facebook.com and its many impacts and implications. We hope to provide through this website an effective resource for researchers, educators, and librarians. The persons involved come from backgrounds including anthropology, sociology, library and information science, human-computer interactions, psychology, and more. Each contributor has his or her own areas of study and all of us join forces in shared interests.
