Going Without Social Media for a Week


Sat, Sep 18th, 2010 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

In an experiment conceived by university provost Eric Darr at the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in Pennsylvania, faculty and students will find out if they can go a week without checking Facebook or Twitter.

The goal, says Eric Darr, isn't about changing anyone's behaviour; instead, it is about giving students the ability to reflect on how much they use social media every day and its impact on their lives.
