College Officials Learn About Applicants Via Facebook
One hopes that prospective college students and hopeful job applicants will have pre-emptively removed any and all unsavory material from their Facebook and MySpace pages prior to the application processes. One hopes. Sometimes this hope is in vain.
Maybe it’s the new Darwinism: all the SAT Prep courses and higher education in the world can’t get a dumbass either into college or hired up well if he/she lacked the survival skills to keep the fabulously unprofessional (and naughty!) bits off the Intertubes. Think, people! Help the future you to succeed!
Yes, social media is sometimes looked over by the powers that be in order that an applicant can be fully vetted. Your can read about it in USA Today. Good luck out there.
