Fayetteville, AK - University of Arkansas sophomore Humphrey Bailey left his Facebook open on his computer in his frat house bedroom for nearly three hours yesterday without vandalism or interference from his fraternity brothers. Bailey, an Alpha Gamma Rho, returned to find his Facebook the unchanged.
"I went off to class and remembered I left my Facebook open just as it was started. I was afraid my brothers would trash my page to embarrass me. Luckily, none of them seemed to notice," Bailey said.
Despite Bailey leaving his room unlocked and the computer being in plain sight, none of his brothers wrote an offensive status update, signed him up for embarrassing groups nor changed his profile picture to transexual porn.
Frat brother Aaron Yankovic had noticed the open Facebook, but had declined to vandalize the page.
"I saw Humpy had left his page open and I thought about writing "I love High School Musical" in his status and change his favorite movies and books to Twilight, Mama Mia, and other chick stuff, but I thought it was a little lame and left it alone," Yankovic said.
Social Media expert Ann Dworkin said that leaving one's Facebook open isn't always going to result in vandalism, but it leaves the possibility open.
"Guys will obviously trash other guys' Facebook, but even girls should be careful a vindictive friend won't change your status, send pokes to that cute guy you're too shy to talk to, or upload a slutty picture from the sorority party where you got wasted and gave the toilet a lap dance," Dworkin said.
