I’ve been wandering around Facebook – trying to see what I can see on the two networks that I’m part of. I’m registered with Uni. Portsmouth (thanks to working here), and Durham – as an alumni. I’m not entirely sure how the Durham network works, as I’ve got one friend who is also there – he’s listed as Faculty (though he was actually a classmate when I was there – which is how he located me). I’ve just realised, though, the reason that I’ve not got him listed when I go to the Durham network, is that I’ve not made him a friend. He’d only sent me a message, I’d not actually made him a friend!
What struck me, though, looking at the list of popular news items on both sites, was the similarity in interests between Portsmouth and Durham students.
