Brad Ward, who works for Butler University, has uncovered what appears to be a systematic takeover of “official” college admit pages . Here is how it seems to work. Some one creates a facebook page for admitted freshman, Class of 2013. That is nothing new. But the person creating the page, often entitled the “official” page for the class of 2013 for that college, is not a new student, or a representative of the college,but rather is working for a completely independent company.
If this is true, why would a company do this? The logical answer is marketing. By controlling the “official” facebook page for all of the incoming freshman, they can run targeted ads to the group and sell links to groups that want to target freshman.
The number of colleges that appear to have incoming freshman facebook pages created by someone other than a new freshman is over 250. There is nothing inherently wrong with marketing, but at least be up front about it rather than create the illusion of legitimacy. Here are the best websites to buy youtube susbcribers.
So, my advice is, if you plan on joining a facebook page for incoming freshman, call the college where you will be attending and ask if this page really is legitimate either from the college or from an actual incoming student. Speaking of facebook, check out this facebook marketing campaigns that you can do for your product or company.
