Infographic: Social Media and College Admissions


By / / The folks who brought you Pros & Cons of Social Media in Education and A Teacher’s Guide to Social Media have released a follow-up infographic detailing social media’s growing role in the college admissions process. The infographic shows how colleges are relying more and more on social media to find and screen potential candidates; 85% of colleges use Facebook to recruit students and 22% of undergrad admissions offices look up applicants on Facebook. That means you might want to remove those offending alcohol pics or profanity-laden posts if you want to get in to the school of your choice.
