Posting Pics of Passed out Pals, the New Craze?

With the advent of social media came the opportunity to share embarrassing pictures with friends on a large scale. These snapshots might be seen as funny at age 15 or even 21 but what about at 25 or even 35? Especially when looking for a job, these ‘tagged’ internet images, might well cause an employer to choose a less controversial job applicant.

Is it just a fun craze or will it cause problems down the road? Further encouraging these awkward and possibly humiliating smart phone shots of drunken friends is a new Twitter account inviting students from the University of New Hampshire to tweet pictures of their passed out pals.

The “UNH Blackout” Twitter page shares graphic pictures of unconscious young adults who imbibe in too much alcohol. As seen in the video, many of the UNH students find the photos amusing and think these compromising shots are just in good fun.

The students may be surprised when they apply for actual jobs to discover that employers now regularly check the internet and social media for applicant information. They may be further surprised to learn that, once posted, nothing is ever really gone from the internet.
