Columbia J-School Students Try to Keep Professor Off Social Media

This is a rather amusing look at what I like to call social media addiction. A Dean and Columbia University is such a prolific poster to social media sites, that a fundraising campaign has been set up that asks his followers to give a monetary donation to not hear from him for 24 hours:

“So a Silence Sree web page was set up and if 200 people donate $5 or more, Sreenivasan’s 4,999 Facebook friends and 19,400 Twitter followers will not hear from him for 24 hours. Columbia students who donate cash can give as little as $1. If fewer than 200 people donate, the silence will last for a comparable portion of the day. All the money will go to charity: 85% to scholarships for Columbia journalism students and 15% to earthquake/tsunami relief in Japan.”

I am nowhere near this man’s social media weight class.
