USI Students Can Anonymously Confess Their Love in a New Facebook Group – How Could This Possibly Go Wrong?
As you are probably well aware, Facebook (and any social media in general) is a huge part of our world today, and people are starting to resort to it for everything. Now, students are even using it to anonymously confess their love for other students. A group of people started a Facebook page where USI students are able to spill their guts about someone that has caught their attention, without the reality of actually doing it face-to-face. This way, there are hopefully no broken hearts, or embarrassing moments, and someone gets to feel flattered for the day (or really creeped out.) Not to mention, all of these posts are out there for the rest of us to get some sort of amusement out of. Don’t get me wrong, some of the confessions are actually really sweet. But give a college student the chance to say ANYTHING to the person they have been crushing on without any consequences (being that it’s all anonymous) and things are bound to get a little dirty. Not to mention the fact that people, myself included, are going to now feel the need to make some sort of an effort to look decent just to attend class. No more just rolling out of bed 15 minutes before class starts and racing to class in your pajamas.
I found some examples of some of the more recent posts and I want to know what you think. Is this kind of creepy or this this just an example of our generation be resourceful with the technology we have been handed?
