Editorial Reviews


"An enlightening and challenging look at the ways in which students use social networking online to explore their individual and collective identities…Online Social Networking on Campus would be a wonderful text for a graduate seminar on contemporary issues in college student development or student affairs. The book would serve equally well as the centerpiece of a professional development reading group discussion. The authors are to be congratulated on their thoughtful and thought-provoking work, and you are encouraged to get involved in the conversation through picking up a copy of this book soon."--George S. McClellan, Journal of College Student Development, July/August 2009, Vol 50 No 4, 468-469

"This book will be useful for anyone with a specific interest in university students and their use of Facebook, or as an example of how to conduct a study of this nature". - Learning, Media and Technology, 35:1

"This book is one means of becoming more educated about the many ways in which students, and even administrators, can take advantage of Facebook to enhance the college student experience. It also provides a good resource for those who are unfamiliar with Facebook and the culture created online through this somewhat new and developing technology."—Review of Higher Education
