Quote: "My observations indicate that student behavior in high school, college, and graduate school has not changed much in the past 40 years. However, due to social media, it's more visible and discoverable."

That made me laugh because I have kids in high school and college, and they are pretty open with me regarding their exploits and those of their friends. I won't say much about what I was doing in high school and college... I will say that I have good kids, and they still have managed to do some things that would make a "grown up" scratch his or her head.

Dennis, I think you hit on one of those things where some limited knowledge can open one up to a lot of speculation with little hope of a satisfactory conclusion. I agree with the other posts made up to this point. I would not let the absence of a Facebook page be a factor. Rather I would rely on the other indicators that were available to me to make the decision.

Facebook Trust Question? It would appear that a number of individuals who are looking for jobs or applying to graduate school are deleting their facebook profile. For example, I have a facebook jobs page, but a number of students recently have said - "I cannot join because I do not have a Facebook page." I am going to assume they did but have deleted it as they apply for jobs. So my question - do you trust a person less or have questions about them if they do not have a facebook page or it looks like they have cleaned up their internet history?
