So being in college I've come across a myriad of random websites, but this one has perked my interest. It's called
. Its purpose is to act as an online directory of people in colleges and universities thoughout the
nation via a vast social network.
It seemingly popped up overnight, spreading from the west coast slowly through friends, friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends through
the nation and across to the east coast. Once it became open to the public on Feb. 4 of this year it was an internet sensation, both online and off. I
know for a fact it has appeared in at least three university newspapers, and presumably more.
Your university doesn't provide any information about you, so whatever you post on the website for others to see is all your own information. In it
you can also list things like what classes you're taking and when, what your interests and hobbies are, and basically any other sort of information
you can think of.
So to keep it conspiracy related (read as: fit the topic of this forum
) what do you think is the possibility that this is just some scam to connect
people through people? You know, so the government, the powers that be, or whoever can keep track of who you're friends with, what you do, and a lot
more about your life.
