Lewd Facebook confessions 'making students unemployable'

Whether or not they contravene any official rules, these boasts are extremely foolish

Students who make Facebook confessions about boozing and bed-hopping have been warned it could leave them unemployable. The craze for online confession pages has swept the country with thousands using them to brag about boozing and bonking.

But academic chiefs have warned students that their racy anecdotes could damage their future job prospects.

One Facebook site, Swansea Uni Confessions, has been slammed by the university and its student union.  In a joint statement, registrar Raymond Ciborowski and Students' Union president Tom Upton said: "We are seriously concerned about the nature and content of these pages.

"Irresponsible use of social media can damage their future employment prospects as companies are increasingly searching for information on job applicants."

I consider this a great way to cull the herd. Stupid people do stupid things and they should therefore be held accountable for their stupid actions. Bravo!

Do you really consider this site to be 'extreme right wing' Kiss or are you just trolling?
While it certainly attracts some extreme comments, many of which are right wing, I don't consider this site to be 'extreme right wing'.
Conservative - definitely, but mostly civil rights focussed (using civil rights in the broad sense with a particular emphasis on the constitutional protections of the First Amendment, rather than the narrow 'race' sense).

An updated version of "the follies of youth" that will catch up with them in later life while trying to be "a pillar of society".
