Call for participation

Short intro to FB Resistance:

Facebook Resistance is a research initiative accepting the status quo of Facebook beeing the dominant social identity management system, researching on ways to change it’s rules and functionality from inside the system, locally via Browser App.

FB sets the rules of how-to behave, so we’re asking: Are we happy to live in their visualisation of our online identity or do we want to change it? A change can be as trivial as adding a background-image. Facebook designing your online identity is like IKEA designing your appartment. The only individuality lies in the family pictures standing in your BILLY shelves.

    Hey there,

    you might also be interested in eEtiquette:
    The digital lifestyle is changing our lives and our behavior. Today the kind of questions we face include “Is it okay if I ignore a ‘friend request’ on Facebook?”, “Is it impolite to put my cell phone on the table in the restaurant?” or “How long can I use the free WiFi in the café without ordering anything?”.

    Now we do have an eEtiquette with 101 dos and don’ts for everyday digital interaction. It has been developed after several months of intensive research work and numerous workshops with participants from more than 12 countries.

    The eEtiquette categories include all communications channels that are relevant today, such as text messages, e-mail, phone, social networks, videoconferences, blogs, chats, etc.

    What do you think?

    Cheers
    Winnie
