Social Media & College Life

Caution.CreativeMarblesConsultancy2013 Anonymous Facebook pages, known as “Confessions” pages are allowing college students to post whatever they want about their campus life–unedited–which can be both cathartic and mean-spirited, stoking fears about cyber-bullying. After a quick survey (very quick), the pages read like old fashioned bathroom stall graffiti–only forever preserved in bits and pixels. Like bathroom stall graffti, the author has the protection of anonymity, while the reader is left to search for the tidbits of information that are meaningful. So, reader beware: the truth of these “confessions” is “to be determined” and may not be reflective of a diverse cross-section of the campus population.
