Intro to Networked Collaboration

Facebook Best Practices

We have been communicated over the google groups on this topic, but I thought I’d move it too the Blog.

On this topic of Facebook Best practices, yesterday I saw an article in the Wall Street Journal that college admissions counselors have been looking at Facebook entries and rejecting students on this basis! I imagine the day may come when employers do this too. It definitely changes the way we view these social spaces. When blogging first came into popularity, there was sentiment by elders wondering why people would put their whole private lives on the web for anyone to read. Now, this story is coming around full-circle, and people are becoming more discretionary as to what they blog about.

It’s an interesting consideration about the relationships of private to public selves (or “Faces”!)
