UH students come clean on facebook

Posted: Updated:

Confessing and professing. It's a new trend on the University of Houston campus.

The kicker?

Students can remain anonymous while admitting to just about anything and everything one desires.

It's called "UH Confessions," a Facebook page that we're told receives anywhere from 2-3 thousand entries a day.

"It's pretty popular," said one student.

Another student admits, "It's a waste of time."

It just depends on who you ask on campus, but from the sounds of it, everyone knows what the page is all about.

Rocio Delbosque's never posted a confession, but says her friends have posted, "the most random things you can think of. It's like a public diary."

Just to give you an idea some of the posts:

 "Some days it feels like the only things to do for fun are alcohol related."

Someone else posted "Too many hot Asian girls at the gym today, need to get out of here."

Another says, "When asked if I voted, I say yes; even though I did no such thing."

Given the language and sexually explicit references, we can't show you all the posts, but you get the idea.

"The concept behind it is like parallel to a slam book, what girls would write about boys and they're counterpart. You know, that's something they would do in like grade school," says Jeffrey Ibarguen who was quick to say the Facebook page is a "waste of time."

Others though are curious about the person "managing" or administering the page.

"There's definitely people asking about it people making guesses about who the administrator is for the page" said Elizabeth Alvarez.

I contacted the "team" as they call themselves for UH Confessions. They declined any on camera interview but told me the page was created based on an idea from another university.

They receive close to 3-thousand entries a day but those managing are careful in selecting what they post in an effort to offer a safe environment.

Posts like " I love to pop zits" are supposed to be just that , "confessions." Given the page has close to 15 thousand hits it's obvious the concept is well liked.

"Some people say its bringing our school together, but some of the things are kind of inappropriate."
