Framing facebook use Using facebook Code Functionalities of Facebook and its applications Interface design Relations Articulated „friend“ships Public & private conversations Interactions (sharing groups, playing games, collaborating, …) Rules Shared Habits Social Norms Terms of Service Laws What is possible – and what is not? „ communities of practice“ feedback (intended & unintended)

  • 7. Users giving feedback: Mobilization and protest
  • 8. User bending code: Creative Use of relationship
  • 9. Code & Facebook use - some open questions
      • To which degree is code regulating specific actions?
        • What is determining if and to which extent users actually follow the „suggestions“ of code?
        • When do users „rebel“ by articulating and mobilizing protest („voice“), when do they abandon a platform or application („exit“)?
      • Who is shaping and regulating the code itself?
        • How are the networks shaped in which code is developed and improved?
        • What are the power (im)balances between Facebook, external developers and the different user communities?
      • How can code in general (and interface design in particular) assist nuanced identity-, relationship- and information management without
        • being too complicated to comprehend and
        • giving way for unintended consequences (e.g. with respect to privacy)?
