Out in central Pennsylvania, a university the size of South Campus just wrapped up a week-long, campus-wide black out of all major social networking sites.
Harrisburg University Provost Eric Darr explains that the ban was meant to be an exercise for students to “think critically about the prevalence of social media.” Evidently, it worked.
Students found that not having to obsess over their Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts allowed them to focus on what they pay for – their education.
Imagine if Nancy decided that for one week you couldn’t access any social networking sites. Would you read a book? Would you get off your ass and exercise?
I’d just grab my laptop and get the fuck off this campus. Let’s be serious, the only reason I even saw this story is because it popped up on my Twitter timeline.
