Facebook, an online social networking site, is a popular way for college students to maintain ties. However, does the fact that students are spending more and more time on their computers "facebooking" one another affect face to face communication, specifically on small, residential college campuses where the concept of an intimate community is often used in recruiting? This paper provides initial insight into the topic through focus group research at a small, residential, Midwestern college. ..PAT.-Unpublished Manuscript [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] Copyright of Conference Papers -- National Communication Association is the property of National Communication Association and its content may not be copied or emailed to multiple sites or posted to a listserv without the copyright holder's express written permission.
