This first set of questions which are the

paper discusses a few research questi ons
that they strive to solve. First one is What proportion of undergraduates have
a Facebook profile, Do these students differ demographically from other
students? That all are the first set of questions which are the primary one
they want to solve. These ones are the following questions What proportion of
users have enabled a privacy setting so that university staff cannot view their
profile?, How many Facebook friends and photographs do students have on their
profile?, What proportion of users post contact information?, What proportion
of users post references to and depictions of par-tying, alcohol, and drugs?, What
proportion of users post positive references about the University, academics,
campus activities and learning?, Do users who post certain types of information
differ demographically from other users?. Through this research they obtained
data such as who uses Facebook? Which A Facebook profile was identified for over
four-fifths (82%) of undergraduates in the sample. Women were more likely than
men to have an account, and first-year students were more likely than seniors
to have a Facebook account. About one-tenth (11.3%) of student users restricted
access to their Facebook profile so that the researchers could not view their
page. Also they got information on how much does undergraduate student shares
online or in other words, disclose information to online community such as
Facebook? Which the result was, users who restricted access to their accounts
did not differ from students who did not restrict access to their accounts in
terms of sex, race, grade point average, membership in the honor’s college, or
class year. A small proportion (7.2%) of central photographs contained clear
pictures of alcohol or individuals consuming alcoholic beverages. About
two-fifths of the profiles examined contained positive references to University
structure or activities, whereas about one-fourth contained at least one
positive reference to academics. The remaining unsolved problems is that the
sample for this study was drawn from a population of student profiles at a
single large, public institution in the Northeast, so the results may not be
generalizable to students’ profiles at all institutions
