University attempts to ban Facebook…

From a chat conversation today:

AF says:
the university sent an email yesterday saying that they’d be blocking facebook and myspace from this weekend. we had so many complaints by 12 today that they sent an email going back on the decison. it’s mental! we had people on the phone saying they wouldn’t accept their place on the course if they couldn’t access myspace

MM says:

AF says:
It was probably a two month process to decide to block them and a 12 hour period to reverse it

MM says:
damn….. what an incredibly stupid decision to try and inforce… talk about not knowing your audience.

  1. nothing like trying to ban facebook to mobilize gen Y. Wonder how many of those people that took the time to complain find time in their busy schedules to vote.
