It's different. It's shiny. It's the fairly new hotness. Yes, it's time for me to ponder Pinterest. Like almost every other social media service that came before it, Pinterest is riding a massive wave of adoption and excitement.

Student Affairs Divisions, Units, Departments, and Offices have been using Facebook Pages as communications and engagement platforms for almost as long as there have been Facebook Pages. In many ways, Facebook Pages have become our outposts for engagement.

Whether or not that is a "good thing" or a "bad thing" is a matter of debate.

Is digital identity development part of your institution's orientation program? It's understandable if it isn't. After all, orientation programs are generally at capacity and an extra addition to the schedule is nearly impossible. However, I suspect that eventually, digital identity development will be present at almost all orientation programs.

Privacy is a fluid construct. People created privacy. We shape it, re-write it, rail against and/or for it. The social rules that dictate privacy are inherently individualized and collectively nebulous. Privacy is not rigid.
