I’m not going to say that I’m a trendsetter, but, you know. At the very least, I’m the man behind the man (generally this woman, though). It is for this reason that I am declaring myself a Kenyon Tastemaker, and the taste of this week is ditching Facebook. This aging tech giant is about to be a thing of the past. As I stand on the precipice of a new age in social media, I have an unprecedented view of the future in front of me. I see six letters … M-O-O-D-L-E. Moodle. The sleeping giant in Kenyon’s technological arena.
So, what does Moodle have to offer that Facebook doesn’t? Nothing — and that’s exactly the way I like it. It’s Facebook to Facebook’s MySpace. When MySpace was overrun with auto-play songs and sparkles, Facebook was a breath of fresh air. Now with Facebook overrun with advertisements, Moodle is that minimalist social networking site that you’ve been missing. Now, that’s not to say that there is no customization (Kenyon students love minimalism).
Not to mention PROFILE PICTURES! Now everyone will see how hard I frat when I’m not in their classes.
A state-of-the-art messaging app:
Finally — while limited — it has groups! (They’re fairly exclusive, too, like a hot new club!)
I rest my case. Facebook is dead and Moodle is here to stay.
P.S. — You can have private files too, which I can only assume are for nude selfies.
