Help on Undergrad Project

I beginning my senior project, which includes research & implementation of a creative project. I am considering creating my research question to be: How have Social Networking Sites effected romantic relationships?  

My advisor suggested I use Processing software to create a map to visualize these interactions. I'm not sure if that is the right route to take. Even if it is, I need to find sample codes since I haven't had much training in Processing.

User Acceptance Testing

Normally I would not post a question so specific to the QA process,
but I have been tasked with helping to define the QA process for User
Acceptance Testing at my company.

Does anyone on the list have experience with putting procedures such

standard UAT methods? I would love to find a couple of really useful
books or URLs w/ information on this topic.

Incentives to get users to log in and personalize?

I'm working on a re-design of my company's online support community. In our re-design, we plan to offer many more features and customization/personalization options-- but users will need to be logged in to take advantage of them (e.g., suggestions of content and local community connections based on preferences, profiles and locations, ability to customize content and view, etc).
