As we discussed in class… people are putting their backstage behavior online for the world to view… My favorite paragraph:
Another member of the Facebook group is more cautious. Laura, a 22-year-old business major, took down a drunken video of herself after being contacted by CNN for an interview, saying the request made her realize anyone could see her video.
“You can’t overstate how unthinking these kids are at 18, 19, 20 years old,” said Robert L. Carothers, president of the University of Rhode Island, and a former member of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism’s Committee on Campus Drinking. “They’re not a thoughtful bunch, by and large.”
But a moderator of the group, who asked that her name not be used, said not to take it too seriously. “It’s just something fun to do,” she said. “You need to be able to laugh at yourself sometimes.”
