The connection between effective living-learning communities and student success in college is well established. Perhaps the most compelling story about residential life on college campuses today lies in the rich intersections between the physical, real-space community and the online, virtual community. Facebook, one of the first location-based social networks, has taken college campuses by storm and shifted the balance between the physical and the virtual community. The session will present preliminary results from a study of how students who live together use Facebook at Stanford University.
