For the last two years, Mia Consalvo and I have been doing research on social network games and families, and Mia and Irene Serrano have been working on SNG’s and cheating (predominantly Facebook at the moment). We have each presented our work at different conferences, and (finally) published the results of our work – references and links below for anyone interested =)
