Post visits UVA’s JuicyCampus [March 3]

The national media spent much of February expressing its shock (and titillation) about JuicyCampus.com, a website started by a Duke grad to air dorm room gossip publicly and anonymously. But the hits keep coming as lurkers scope the site following a Washington Post column by Marc Fisher. Fisher contacted several UVA students labeled promiscuous by anonymous posts, and he discovered that none of them “saw any purpose in trying to silence the site.” Another reason the UVA students may not care: Even though the website promises “Always Anonymous…Always Juicy…,” most topics get few replies, and the only posting for “Faculty/Administration” is a one-word post: “poop.”


The juice is loose: The Washington Post looked into JuicyCampus.com’s effect on UVA students.
