Facebook is one of the faster growing sites for social networking. Its popularity increases every day, and so do the hopes, the concerns and the controversies that surround it. This event brings together researchers in Social Sciences, Humanities and Education, who study Facebook and its effect on our life and work. The symposium will explore issues of trust, deception and negotiation of identity; the use of Facebook for student support and learning; the use of Facebook as a research tool; and many more.

Monica Whitty, School of Social Sciences, Nottingham Trent University Tristram Hooley, CRAC
