Facebook Rejects College Webpages

November 24, 2006

Colleges that try to use Facebook.com as a creative way to reach students will discover, eventually, that the popular social-networking site has a policy that prohibits accounts on behalf of any group or entity. Employment placement offices or admissions offices will find their pages removed, sometimes without warning. Colleges that have learned the hard way may turn to MySpace instead -- which allows organizational pages. Chronicle of Higher Education (requires subscription)
