Social network sites and accessibility, ideas, research, challenges, law suits?

Hello everyone

I have been asked to write part of a research paper on social networks
and accessibility, especially the introduction and speculation on the
benefit and growing reliance on social networks as well as the main
challenges we face in terms of accessibility. Any history of law suits
or reviews, or smart articles on Facebook vs Facebook mobile vs web
services they offer, and the potential for the use of ARIA in the
realm of social networks is all appreciated.
I have a stash of resources already, but I know people on this list
know a lot more than I about web accessibility.
Facebook is the initial focus of the study but I believe Twitter,
Google Docs and Foursquare may get mentioned later on.
Thanks everyone.
