Christina Fong and I have a new paper out - a large scale experiment on the impact of social media on the hiring behavior (and potentially discriminatory bias) of U.S. firms. Thank you to the fantastic team of RAs who made this experiment possible.

+Ralph Gross, +Fred Stutzman, and I have a new manuscript out based on the analysis of seven years of public disclosures on the CMU Facebook network. The study tries to quantify how disclosure and privacy behaviors evolved over time - and specifically how users increasingly attempted to protect their privacy, but the network's changes nudged them towards more disclosures. Interesting how closely the field data seems to match what we would have predicted from lab studies of privacy decision making:
