Is what you say or post impacting your college acceptance?

Ever wonder who is looking at your 'social media page'?   "Is HE looking?"  "Is SHE looking?" 

A parental unit is undoubtably looking...a 'grand' parental unit may be, too.  You can feel them breathing down your neck, right?  LOL  

It may come as a surprise, however, that college admissions counselors may be looking.  A recent poll said, 
"Of the 403 undergraduate admissions officers who were polled by telephone over the summer, 35 percent said they had visited an applicant’s social media page — a 9 percentage point increase compared with 2012."
