Follow up to the article on ‘selfies’ in College April 28 2014

I thought this would be a good article to share at the beginning of the week:
“Take the Shot”
“When it comes to selfies, most institutions agree: promote -- don't prohibit.”
“Bryant University may have started a mini-trend when it banned selfies at graduation two weeks ago. Several more universities last week introduced similar bans on phone use as students approach the stage, arguing that stopping to snap means dragging out an already hours-long ceremony -- or sullying its significance.”
“But unless institutions confiscate all camera-equipped devices, chances are many students will spend at least part of their commencement ceremonies with their arms extended, squeezing as many fellow grads as possible into the frame as they immortalize the day. For many universities, not only is that perfectly acceptable behavior, but it also supports their efforts to engage students with selfies.”
“Frostburg State University will for a third year in a row include language in its commencement program on how to celebrate graduation on social media.”
Interesting ‘issues’ that technology seems to develop nowadaysJ
