Adopting the Facebook: A Comparative Analysis

The Facebook is truly a killer app for incoming freshmen – as they prepare to start a new life in a new place, surrounded by a new social network, the Facebook presents a highly interactive way to explore this new space. For those of us who sent snail-mail letters to our freshman year roommates, Facebook is everything we could have dreamed of and then some – not only can students know everything about their new roommates, but they can learn everything about their suite, their floor, and their dorm. This is information students need to know, and it helps them get situated in their new social networks. —Fred StutzmanAdopting the Facebook: A Comparative Analysis (Unit Structures)
