I’ve never heard of one, but I know many have been written about Facebook and the larger social networking sites. It would be interesting to see if you could get it through your committee. And anyway, if you are seriously considering this, you would surely already have done a serious search for existing work on fluther. But I doubt such exists.

I don’t think so and I think you should go for it!

Not that I know of—but that sounds awesome!

If you decide to do this (and I hope you do), we’d gladly provide access to more data and help you in any way we can.

@JonnyCeltics I hope you can make it work. I would love to read the resulting paper.

I mean I would consider using it in my thesis as well, but not it exclusively… Comparing this place to the WELL would be fantastic, not to mention to compare it to Jenkin’s Forums in Convergence Culture
