University Declares Week Without Social Media

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in Pennsylvania is enforcing a week-long ban on social media applications like Facebook, Twitter and Myspace. Access will be blocked from campus computers throughout the week, not as a disciplinary measure but as an experiment, according to university Provost Eric Darr.

“Often there are behaviors, habits, ways we use technology that we may ourselves not even be able to articulate because we’re not aware of them,” Darr says.
