Vitak, Jessica, Lampe, Cliff, Gray, Rebecca and Ellison, Nicole B. (2012): "Why won't you be my Facebook friend?": strategies for managing context collapse in the workplace. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 555-557.

This poster presents a preliminary analysis of data collected from staff personnel at a large U. S. university regarding their use of the social network site (SNS) Facebook in their personal and professional lives. Sixty-five percent of online American adults now have a profile on a SNS, and Facebook is increasingly utilized in organizational settings such as universities as a tool for information dissemination, recruiting, and promotion of the organization and its programs. Analysis of interview data (N = 26) found that while social media outlets like Facebook offer a number of advantages for reaching diverse populations, navigating work/life boundaries on Facebook was a concern for many participants. Through the lens of context collapse -- the flattening of multiple distinct audiences into a singular group -- we explicate these concerns, focusing on participants' strategies for maintaining boundaries between their personal and professional lives.

Wohn, Donghee Yvette, Lampe, Cliff, Vitak, Jessica and Ellison, Nicole B. (2011): Coordinating the ordinary: social information uses of Facebook by adults. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 340-347.

Social network sites (SNSs) are bundles of information and communication tools that can be used to support collaboration, among other uses. In a qualitative study of adult Facebook users (N=18), we found that some users did turn to the site for information uses that are embedded in social activities, including organizing events, establishing online groups, and seeking information. We also discuss the features of Facebook that respondents discussed as being important to these uses.

Lampe, Cliff and Ellison, Nicole B. (2010): Student athletes on facebook. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW10 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2010. pp. 193-196.

Student athletes at U.S. universities are bound by rules affecting their participation in their sport and are highly visible to their fellow students and a larger public of fans. This difference makes them more likely than other students to be sensitive to issues of impression management and use of social network sites (SNSs). In this paper, we show how student athletes at a large university engage with the social network site Facebook compared with their fellow students, including differences in the size of their networks, reported uses of the site, and perceptions about their audience. This work shows that while student athletes have a higher anticipation of being watched, they have similar uses and concerns compared to other students.

Lampe, Cliff, Ellison, Nicole B. and Steinfield, Charles (2008): Changes in use and perception of facebook. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW08 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2008. pp. 721-730.

As social computing systems persist over time, the user experiences and interactions they support may change. One type of social computing system, Social Network Sites (SNSs), are becoming more popular across broad segments of Internet users. Facebook, in particular, has very broad participation amongst college attendees, and has been growing in other populations as well. This paper looks at how use of Facebook has changed over time, as indicated by three consecutive years of survey data and interviews with a subset of survey respondents. Reported uses of the site remain relatively constant over time, but the perceived audience for user profiles and attitudes about the site show differences over the study period.
