Picking up the right college some years ago was a really tough task. The only guides available to help you were some old college guidebooks. These books provided only a general insight of the college, without providing any details about how the college was actually for the students. You would not be able to find such information even if you visit the college because such information would be clearly edited by the college`s communication department. Until you get to talk with the students you won’t get a real insight of the institution.
But luckily enough, today we have several social media which is making our task of taking decisions a lot easier. You can discuss with the students about your topic of concern about the college, get to know the minor and major advantages and disadvantages of the college with nothing being hidden from you. The face of the college could become completely transparent to you, thanks to social media.
One very popular social site you all may have been using is facebook. We all have been using it to stay connected with our friends and to idle up our time. But facebook can also be a perfect guide to help you select your college. To research the various options available, there is an application in facebook called College planner. It suggests you a list of colleges suited for you according to your requirements. You can get a look at the statistics of the colleges and get an insight on your friends’ opinion about the college. Once you have selected your college, you can also directly apply to it using the college planner.
You tube has also added a new feature in which closed communities of various colleges can be formed which would include the college students, staffs and alumni. No other source can give you an in depth and true information about the college as the college members themselves.
Orkut is one of the most popular networking sites. Orkut has various communities formed on the various colleges. The members may include the college students and other college members. You get to discuss about the various aspects of the college you wish to apply to. Every individual has a different opinion and so you can get to know about your college from various angles.
Similarly various other networking sites can be used to get information about your college. It makes the face of the college completely transparent to you. Now, no more hidden secrets about the college and you get to choose the best college for you confidently.
