Social Media

Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Blogspot. We all know how convenient they are. Social media helps us keep connected to friends and family and quickly share information and photos. But be careful what you post! The universities here in Florida have stated at several meetings that the counselors at Fletcher have gone to that they are using social media to see whether or not they will admit a student to their university.

Please read an article posted on UMass' website titled, "Colleges and Universities using MySpace, Facebook, Blogs and Other Online Tools to Learn More about Applicants" so see exactly how universities are using these online sites as tools.
