How to run a small social network site for your friends
Since August 2018 I have run a social network site called Friend Camp for about 50 of my friends. I think Friend Camp is a really nice place, and my friends seem to agree that it has enriched our lives. I'd like to see more places like Friend Camp on the internet, and this document is my attempt to provide some practical guidance as to how you might run a social network site like this.

Friend Camp is an intentionally small social network so the home page doesn't look like much if you don't have a login. You can read some of our policies if you like.

Real World Moderation: Lessons from 11 Years of Community at SXSW Interactive 2011 | Lanyrd
After 11 years of running, I (and the other moderators) have been through just about everything, and we've built dozens of custom tools to weed out garbage, spammers, and scammers from the site.

I'll cover how to identify and solve problems including identity, trolling, sockpuppets, and other nefarious community issues, show off custom tools we've developed for MetaFilter, and show you how to incorporate them into your own community sites.

ging/social_stream - Social Stream: core for building social network websites

Activity Streams is a format for syndicating social activities around the web. It has already been adopted by some of the major social networking platforms.

Social Stream provides a database schema based on the Activity Streams specification, leading your application towards a well-known compatible data model design. It is extensible so you can add your own activities easily.

Openbook - Connect and share whether you want to or not
Openbook lets you search public Facebook updates using Facebook's own search service. Facebook's bait-and-switch on privacy and their overly complex settings cause many users to post messages intended for their friends to 'everybody'. That's the entire planet, for all time. This privacy-malfunction could have serious consequences if you're looking for a job, applying for college, or trying to get medical insurance.

The Ultimate List: 300+ Social Media Statistics
It's evident that the evolution of social media has a clear impact on marketing. However, a major issue is that too much misinformation and propaganda exists about social media adoption, usage and its business applications. While we have written at length about social media and inbound marketing on this blog for the past several years, we are also huge fans of data here at HubSpot. This post is a homage to all of the awesome data that exists on the web about social media, though is by no means even close to all of it.

The 4 Big Myths of Profile Pictures « OkTrends
In looking closely at the astonishingly wide variety of ways our users have chosen to represent themselves, we discovered much of the collective wisdom about profile pictures was wrong. For interested readers, I explain our measurement process, and how we collected our data, at the end of the post. All my bar charts are zeroed on the average picture. Now to the data.

Quando esse pessoal vai aprender? « Log4Dev
Eu lembro da época em que o orkut não tinha sido “dominado” por usuários do Brasil. A coisa era nova, mesmo com redes sociais já existentes e boa parte dos americanos usando o Friendster. Isso foi num remoto 2004.
