Roommates, the Online Version
"It used to be that the first contact with a new roommate came in a letter, a phone call, an e-mail message, but many students now meet online, checking one another out on Facebook. But while all that information can help pave the students’ path to friendship, it can be too much for parents who might see the roommate’s photos of wild partying, hints of drug use, or blunt statements about sexual preferences."
