When I was a sophomore in college, Facebook (or THE Facebook as it was known back then) introduced the News Feed, allowing you to seamlessly stalk your classmates just by scrolling down an aggregated page on the site. People were up in arms over it, crying about ‘invasion of privacy,’ threatening to boycott the new site. Those same people now garner their entire self worth over how many people liked the photo of their ham and cheese quiche or ugly baby (ok, not all of them are ugly). Total social transparency has become the new normal, and it’s not going to stop until we know what color our friends’ poop is.
Now, Facebook is just one tool in the belt for college students. There’s Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and probably something I don’t know about. In the most reckless time of students’ lives, there is the most visibility. It’s fucking dangerous.
Case in point: This dude named AJ getting outed by his school, Ohio State’s, Snapchat feed. Apparently students can now send photos to their school’s Snapchat feed, ranging from appropriate scholarly photos to a butt chug.
For AJ, he just saw his relationship go up in flames. The following photo was posted to the account, and a snowball effect ensued from there.

Eventually, AJ was exposed by another post on the Snapchat account revealing his Instagram account, that went private.
And throw in his Facebook profile with the girl he cheated on for good measure!
At the moment, AJ is probably pleading his case to his girlfriend in a dark room with tears running down his face. Meanwhile, Ohio State students are brutalizing him with memes.
The abuse is coming from every corner of the United States. This poor, poor bastard.
How much abuse can a man take for cheating? His real crime was having a girlfriend is college. That’s like going to Six Flags and only riding the carousel. Be better, AJ.
