University Wants to Find out If Students Survive Without Social Networks

The dean of an American university wants to do an experiment on campus that can leave some students nervous and possibly with symptoms of withdrawal syndrome. Eric Darr, University of Science and Technology Harrisburg, want to block for a week access to social networks like Twitter, Facebook and instant messengers, some even the university itself.

As pointed out by Devin Coldewey of CrunchGear blog, the experiment has failed fundamental: many social networks can be accessed normally by data network phone or SMS, two media that are not controlled by the university. Still, the research will serve to show what percentage of students who began to use the phone more with this particular use or which were so upset with the inability to access social networks who decided to stay home and study using their own connection, without restrictions.

For a large portion of Brazilian university students that study a week may seem nothing more than a normal day on their campuses since many colleges already implement blocking the social networking sites, games and etc. But Darr said that this experiment was designed to “assess how social networks are involved in professional and personal lives of students” and “consider the advantages and disadvantages of sacrificing access to them.”

The experiment will begin next Monday. I expect chaos and destruction already on Wednesday.
