Facebook Pages Anonymously Share ‘Secrets’

NEW YORK, (UPI) — Facebook pages are being created at universities across New York to allow students and instructors to anonymously share their “secrets.”
A page called Hunter Secrets is filled with anonymous messages from instructors and students at City University of New York, including confessions of student/instructor trysts, the New York Post reported Monday.
“I’m an instructor at Hunter College and this weekend, I engaged in sexual intercourse with one of my students,” one of the posts reads. “I did have a bit of guilt at first but that guilt has gone away. I’ll just end this by saying that it was the hottest sex I have ever had.”
Similar pages have been set up for New York University, Queens College and other schools.
“I’m a Teaching Assistant at NYU and I have a crush on one of my students,” a post on the New York University page reads. “I don’t know if I should tell her now or wait for the term to end since it might cost me my job.”
A communications staffer at a New York college told the Post administrators are concerned about the pages.
“Administrations monitor them, the kids are looking at these pages before they go to the school’s website,” the staffer said. “Anything that affects a school’s brand or its perception — especially with so much competition for applicants — is going to be a serious cause for concern.”
