Introduction

Research questions

Methodology

  • Develop an issuecrawler (snowball + co-link) between existing alternative platforms to FB:
http://opensource.appleseedproject.org/ http://opensource.appleseedproject.org/blog/ http://buddypress.org/blog/ http://crabgrass.riseuplabs.org/about/ http://www.cynapse.com/community http://community.elgg.org/ http://blog.elgg.org/ http://identi.ca/group https://www.jappix.com/ http://lorea.org/ http://lorea.org/new/web_lorea/development.php http://noosfero.org/Site [[http://project.friendika.com/][ http://openatrium.com/ http://openatrium.com/community http://project.friendika.com/]] http://pinaxproject.com/blog/ http://pinaxproject.com/blog/community/ http://smob.me / http://status.net/blog http://blog.joindiaspora.com/ http://www.thimbl.net/ http://www.thimbl.net/about.html http://www.waveprotocol.org/ http://www.waveprotocol.org/get-involved http://status.net/blog http://xmpp.org/ http://xmpp.org/participate/the-xmpp-summit/

For the key words list of platforms we will look at the presence of the previous list

Note: Searching Facebook content via DiscoveryText or Bing produced variable results for different users. It appears that search results are 'personalized' for both Facebook and Bing searches. On the other hand, Google produced consistent results for different users.

  • Develop a list of key words regarding those projects:
descentralized web
federated social web
open social
web of trust
interoperability
semantic web
net neutrality

encryption
GPG
PGP

RDF
FOAF + SLL
ostatus
openID
salmon
pubsubhub
atom

Digital identity
Federated identity
Authentification
Information privacy

data mining
surveillance
censorship

Privacy-enhancing technologies
Sousveillance
Surveillance
Privacy software
  • Develop comparison of pages privacy settings inside alternative social platforms

    We will use this updated table and look inside the production projects
Develop a list of key words that describe the project to query Google (results are public groups and pages)

Queries:

"Buddypress" site:facebook.com
"crabgrass" site:facebook.com
"cynapse" site:facebook.com
"elgg" site:facebook.com
"identi.ca" site:facebook.com
"open source" AND "lorea" OR "n-1.cc" OR "lorea.org" site:facebook.com
"pinax" site:facebook.com
"status.net" site:facebook.com
"diaspora" AND "social networking" site:facebook.com
"Google wave" OR "wave protocol" site:facebook.com
"xmpp" site:facebook.com
"appleseed" AND "open source" site:facebook.com
"Thimble" site:facebook.com

Second query: "Buddypress" site:facebook.com/group , etc.

Findings

Resonance social media platforms in Facebook. (Google scraper query in Facebook.com)

Resonance platforms in Facebook groups 07-07-11 (Google scraper query in Facebook.com/group)
