Abstract: Compared to the large number of studies on social networking sites (SNSs) and social capital,
relatively few have focused on the social implications of SNSs for social support, which is of
great significance to college students. This study fills this gap by examining how Facebook
interaction is related to various types of social support—enacted social support on Facebook
(both receiving and giving social support on Facebook) and perceived social support in general.
A survey of college students at a large public university (N = 566) reveals that Facebook
interaction is positively related to receiving and giving social support on Facebook. However,
neither social interaction nor enacted social support on Facebook is related to perceived social
support in general.

Abstract: The opening up of Facebook to increasingly diverse audiences—in addition to the college populations for which it was originally intended, Facebook is now available to the population at large—presents some interesting questions: for example (1) how do we now conceptualize interpersonal relationships and linkages? (2) in what ways does this new technology help us achieve strategic-, business-, and/or educational goals?; (3) do people from different countries use Facebook in the same or similar ways? The purpose of this paper is to more closely examine people’s use of Facebook by contrasting Norwegian and American Facebook users’ online communicative practices.

Abstract: A lot of research has dealt with motivations to use social networking sites (SNS). However, there is little methodological research on how to properly measure active use and how that use is perceived by other users. For our explorative studies, we developed and tested two instruments: (1) The Facebook Usage Questionnaire (FUQ) and the Perceived Facebook Usage Questionnaire (P-FUQ). To test the validity of the instruments, we investigated whether the FUQ is able to detect age and gender differences in Facebook usage and whether the P-FUQ is associated with the perception of credibility, sociability, and narcissism. Our findings suggest that the FUQ captures 3 different dimensions of Facebook usage: social interaction, personal, and professional posting. Age was positively correlated with social interaction and personal posting, whereas gender was only positively related to social interaction. Potential application areas for the instruments and implications for future research are discussed.

Abstract: Past research has established an empirical link between Facebook use and perceptions of social capital, a concept that taps into the resources people gain from interactions with their social network. In this study, we examine a random sample of public Facebook status updates (N=20,000) for instances in which users are requesting a response from their network. These attempts to mobilize resources offer insight into the mechanisms through which Facebook is used for social capital conversion. After identifying mobilization requests (N=512/2.6%), we categorize them by cost (i.e., effort requested to meet the request) and type (e.g., opinion, information, social coordination) to examine the kinds of requests made via public status updates and the extent to which these requests require substantive effort on the part of the potential responders. Finally, we examine differences in user demographics and linguistic characteristics of status updates that include mobilization requests versus those that do not.
