This what is the ratio of undergraduates having

paper discusses a few research questions that they strive to solve. First one
is what is the ratio of undergraduates having a facebook profile and do these
students differ demographically from other students? That all are the first set
of questions which are the primary one they want to solve. These ones are the
following questions for example what ratio of users have enabled privacy
settings so that university staff cannot view their profile? Or how many
Facebook friends and photographs do students have on their profile? Or what
ratio of users post contact information? or what ratio of users post references
to and depictions of partying, alcohol, and drugs? Or what ratio of users post
positive references about the University, academics, campus activities and learning?
Do the social media users who post certain types of information differ
demographically from other social media users?. Through this research they
obtained data such as who uses Facebook, which Facebook profile was identified
for over 4/5 (82%) of undergraduates in the sample. They also discovered that women
were more likely than men to have an account, and that first-year students were
more likely than seniors to have a Facebook account. About 1/10 (11.3%) of
student social media users restricted access to their Facebook profile so that
the researchers could not view their profile. Also they got information on how
much does undergraduate student shares online or in other words, disclose
information to online community such as Facebook? Which the result was, users
who restricted access to their accounts did not differ from students who did
not restrict access to their accounts in terms of sex, race, grade point
average, membership in the honor’s college, or class year. A small ratio (7.2%)
of central photographs contained clear pictures of alcohol or individuals
consuming alcoholic beverages. About 2/5 of the profiles examined contained
positive references to University structure or activities, whereas about
one-fourth contained at least one positive reference to academics. The
remaining unsolved problems is that the sample for this study was drawn from a
population of student profiles at a single large, public institution in the
Northeast, so the results may not be generalizable to students’ profiles at all
