Facebook Statuses

As part of our initial research into Facebook, we collected status updates to see if we could find anything of interest, including looking into the frequency of ‘frapes’ or ‘Facebook Rapes’ (where your status update is ‘raped’ by somebody other than yourself). This helped us to look in a more critical way at Facebook as we are normally so immersed in the medium that we don’t notice any patterns.


Jamie’s – 

The status’ are ambiguous and unpredetermined the only point of selection was that they were not within interlinking social groupswith other members of the team. They were not selected with entertainment or controversial merit, purely for the fact they were spontetous and unique to location and situation.

Becca’s –

As a group task, we decided to compile 30 status updates from our friends who are on Facebook or Twitter. I chose people who I knew back home, in Nottingham on Facebook. That was the only factor of choice, so we could get varied updates to explore more avenues for our performance.
