A local college here today suspended four girl students for allegedly uploading pictures of a classroom,clicked through mobile phones,on their Facebook accounts.
As if to rub it in,the college authorities announced the suspension and imposition of a fine (Rs 200 each) on the Facebook ‘walls’ of the girls.
Anybody in the friend-list of a person on the Facebook can post messages on his/her ‘wall’,which may be read by all others in the list.
“There is a ban on using mobile phones in the college,despite that these four girls have taken pictures of the classroom and uploaded them on the site,” said Rajiv Khare,Director,Lal Bahadur Professional Studies College.
Khare said some other students commented in a bad taste on the uploaded pictures,and they too were facing action.
The director added that college was thinking of organising a workshop for students on how to handle the social networking sites.
