The focus of our review was to focus on empirical articles published in academic journals or conference proceedings that explicitly studied Facebook. To be included as relevant in our final bibliography, a source must have: (1) specifically investigated Facebook (but not necessarily only Facebook) and, if other online social networks were included, reported data separately for Facebook, (2) been published in a peer-reviewed academic journal or peer-reviewed conference proceedings, and (3) reported empirical findings. We believe the three criteria provide a sensible and effective system for gathering relevant research. However, there were some articles that did not meet our three criteria but still offered thoughtful insights about Facebook as well as ideas for future research. The below list accounts for these articles (which are not in the other bibliography sections).
