The “Mom Test”…

College Kids

spaceballThe guy in this video says do the “mom test” if you are applying for college… I fear it is not that easy.  He says, just delete photos and text on your Facebook account that you wouldn’t want your mom to see then you will get into college!  Oh yeah, “just delete it.” 


I’d ask him one question:

1)      What about information (photos, videos, text, etc) that friends have posted of you or that live on other website that you don’t have control over?  How do you get rid of that Dirt mister guy with the Buzz Lightyear action figure “college admission specialist”?


My advice:  I’ve said it before, “don’t post anything you wouldn’t want anyone other than your friends (moms included) to see.”  Then you don’t have to worry about cleaning it up.  I wonder if one day there will be an online etiquette class in 6th graders.  It could the new “technology” class (I remember when I was in 7th grade “shop class” became “technology” and “home economics class” was done away with!)


Sorry I couldn’t embed the video (WordPress sucks)…
