Social media have done the world a lot of good. The Arab Spring uprising was organized through Twitter.
On the other hand, there’s FADE.
FADE, whose slogan is “Nothing Lasts Forever,” is a social media app focused on colleges and the college experience. Posts, which can be a photo/video and/or text, have a 24-hour lifespan, which can be altered in one-hour increments by up-or-down voting by other users.
Indiana University of Pennsylvania this week ranked ninth all-time among colleges for FADE activity, according to the app itself.
It is this brief lifespan that has brought out the IUP student body’s inner white devils, in addition to just their bodies.
