Link the the NCAA’s page on social networks: http://www.ncaa.org/wps/wcm/connect/public/NCAA/Issues/Recruiting/Social+Media+and+Recruiting

I think the text message ban was wise at the time, but has quickly become archaic.

And that link to the NCAA’s stance on social network shows how out of the loop the NCAA is on social networking.

Thanks. The NCAA needs a faster way to react to these changes in technology.

Absolutely.

Come October, the NCAA will present their latest stance on Facebook and Twitter while, in the meantime, everyone will have moved to Google+. ;D

BTW - anyone want a Google+ invite?

Sure, I’ll try Google+
