In this project, we analyze blocking mechanisms on social media. We perform a comparative analysis of different technologies and socially curated block-lists on Twitter. We also conduct interviews with users who are on such block-lists as well as those who subscribe to them. Our analysis reveals nuances of online harassment and the tactics used by harassers. We discuss the limitations of state of the art moderation used by social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Networking and peer inspiration from alumni of your program/school is important when making decisions about the next steps in your career. However, schools lose touch with alumni once they graduate and find it difficult to keep a track of where they are. Networking platforms such as Linkedin are helpful but do not provide a big picture of your alumni network. AlmaBase is a Linkedin extension, that shows a visualization of career trajectories of alumni from your program, for you to find the "right" alumni to network with and get inspired.
