College Institutes One-Week Social Media Blackout
This story caught my eye: The Harrisburg University of Science and Technology this week has put in place a social media blackout. Students as well as staff are banned from using Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.
What an experiment! It appears that the students are taking this in stride, but the general public seems to be outraged at this infringement.
With social media such a constant presence in our online lives, how do you feel about this type of ban? Is it a worthwhile experiment? Will it heighten the students' and staff awareness of how much time they spend on social media? Or is it truly a stepping-on of people's rights? Post your comments below!
