Because photographs are instrumental to Facebook use, this study focused on the many images students place on their profiles. The use of photographs in social research is limited and it is hoped that this study will lay the ground work for further use of visual methods.I would like to invite you to participate in a study examining how students use Facebook and how they appear in the photographs that they place ... If you agree to participate, I will download your entire Facebook profile, including the pictures.
