Research on Facebook and other social nets.

Some time ago Academics began to research on Facebook and other social nets to discover new trends in behaviour, like some posters/papers presented in the Society for Personality and Social Psychology Conference 28-30 January 2010

* "Can you resist the temptation of Facebook: Asymmetrical Facebook-study association predicts academic performance"
* "The Effect of Personality Factors in Predicting Information Disclosure Online"
* "Frequent Facebook Use: Maladaptive Addiction or Healthy Social Strategy?"
* "People or Profiles?: Seeking Out or Warding Off the Perspectives of Others on Facebook"
* "ePersonality: Differential perceptions of personality during online and real-world social interactions"
* "Who are you on Facebook? The role of personality and gender in online social networking sites"
* "Using MySpace increases the endorsement of narcissistic personality traits"
* "Facebook Norms: How People use Facebook to Share and Connect with Others"
* "Personnel Selection, Facebook, and the Dilution Effect: Is More Information Really Better?"

More than a year later, it seems research on social nets is over.
Research had only discovered people who make an intensive use of social nets, had some personality disorders.
