Student-athletes banned from Facebook

[http://active.typepad.com/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/73369864.jpg] Facebook.com is a website that every college student knows about and many of their elders don't. Athletic administrators are becoming more familiar with it and many don't like what they see.

 

 

 

For those of you not familiar, students who join the site get personal pages on which they can post pictures and personal information such as cell phone numbers and class schedules.

 

 

 

One year ago, at the beginning of my senior season, Loyola University Chicago went as far as to forbid its athletes to belong. "That would be like banning rock 'n' roll in the '50s," Facebook director of marketing Melanie Deitch told USA Today. Almost two-thirds of the nation's college students have accounts, the company says.
