My colleagues and I are finally releasing our Facebook data:

The data includes the complete set of nodes and links (and some 
demographic information) from 100 US colleges and universities from a 
single-time snapshot in September 2005.  [We had previously released the 
data for 5 of the institutions.]

The paper that goes along with the data (and which should be cited with 
any use of the data) is now on the arXiv preprint server:

And, obviously, if you have any suggestions for the paper, please let us 

And for those of you who knew this was coming, sorry we're about 2 years 
late.  The paper took forever...
