                RESEARCH PROPOSAL

Navigating in Their Space: Get Connected and Improve Your
Effectiveness with Teens

Current collegians can immediately identify the newest trends in online
profile and posting activity.

This project will survey up to 500 current college students, identify key
themes, and disseminate the insight to youth development professionals
and high school students.

A new curriculum, “Navigating in Their Space” will result.
                                                                  APPLICATION FOR EXEMPTION

                                                                  FROM REVIEW BY THE INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARD
                                                                  The Ohio State University, Columbus OH 43210

        All research activities involving the use of human beings as research subjects must be reviewed and approved by an Ohio State University Institutional
Review Board (IRB), unless the Office of Responsible Research Practices (ORRP) determines that the research falls into one or more of the categories of
exemption established by federal regulation.

         Exempt research is generally short term in nature. It must be performed “as written,” i.e. the investigators do not make changes in the research design,
the selection of subjects, the informed consent process, or the instrumentation during the course of the study. If changes are necessary, re-application is required.

           A determination that research is exempt does not absolve the investigators from ensuring that the welfare of human subjects participating in research
activities is protected, and that methods used and information provided to gain subject consent are appropriate to the activity. Investigators may not solicit
subject participation or begin data collection until they have received approval from the appropriate Institutional Review Board OR written concurrence
that research has been determined to be exempt.

          All OSU Investigators who participate in human subjects research must be appropriately trained in human subjects protection. See for more details.

        There is no deadline or timeline for submitting exempt applications for review. Applications are processed as received. Each application must include a
research proposal. The proposal must include (at a minimum) the following items: the background literature review, the research question, a description of the
research methods including sample size and data collection procedures, and a data analysis plan.
        Please allow up to three weeks for processing.

       If you have questions regarding the application process or the review of exempt protocols, please contact Janet Schulte, Office of Responsible
Research Practices.

Exaggerated –
“we exagerate! its not all true! blogging

way to vent and arent necessarily
100% accurate. They normally express
a lot of angry feelings and not a lot of
happy ones bc when we are happy we

Exaggerated –
“Online profiles do not give a 'real
inciteful view' of what the
teen/student/employee is feeling or
is acting. There may be things on
the profile that the teacher or adult
didn't know, but usually these
profiles are used as a vent or simply
Get Out –
“It is not meant for their access, it is meant for
high school through college students, maybe
graduate students, and they need to keep their
noses out of that business.”

“not to infringe on personal privacy - it's like
tapping phone conversations or searching
through somebody's personal belongings.”

“Privacy should be respected but an
obvious cry for help should not be
“if a teen is acting in an unusual
behavior and you feel that insight
could be gained by viewing their
profile, do so.”

Keep in contact with people I don’t see

  Advice for a potential user
Go ahead and do it. If you don’t like it, you can
always delete it. But they’re a lot of fun!

Don’t feel obligated to accept friends requests
from people you don’t know

Be careful what you put on there. Avoid
addresses, phone numbers, etc.

Know that what you post can last forever, even if
you delete it.
           Unwritten Rules
Cyber stalking – so not cool

Don’t be stupid. Use common sense.

It’s ok to have adults ask kids to be their friends

Follow normal life rules. 45 year old men
shouldn’t ask 16 year olds out.

We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer
the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. For example: • We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business,
such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about Facebook, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, or to provide search
results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these
business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the Facebook-specified
purposes. • We occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a glimpse into the Facebook world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g., messaging is disabled) and passwords are changed
regularly to limit possible misuse. • We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we
have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with
law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Facebook service or using the Facebook name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information
with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies. • We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers. • We may offer
stores or provide services jointly with other companies on Facebook. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on Facebook, and we may share customer information with that company in
connection with your use of that store or service. • If the ownership of all or substantially all of the Facebook business, or individual business units owned by Facebook, Inc., were to change, your user information may be
transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user informati on would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

Facebook may contain links to other websites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each
and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by Facebook.
Third Party Advertising

Advertisements that appear on Facebook are sometimes delivered (or "served") directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also
download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" (also known as "1x1 gifs") to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows
the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information
about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. Facebook does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third
party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on Facebook unless you choose to share it with them.
This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Facebook and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.
Changing or Removing Information

Access and control over most personal information on Facebook is readily available through the profile editing tools. Facebook users may modify or remove any of their profile information at any time by logging into their account.
Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their Facebook account may do so on the My Privacy page. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will
not be generally available to members of Facebook.
Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on Facebook, however, (e.g., posting on someone else's Wall) you generally cannot remove such communications.

Facebook takes appropriate precautions to protect our users' information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure
communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of Facebook Web Site, please contact us at
