Catfish on Campus

Cat·fish [kat-fish] noun — a person who pretends to be someone they're not, using social media to create a false identity, particularly to pursue deceitful online romances.

In a world where everyone is constantly connected digitally, social media has made communicating easier but this digital world might also complicate relationships. According to MTV, amongst 18-24 year old “Millenials,” 1 in 4 has online dated, 1 in 2 has “a friend” who does it, and in the past three years, traffic to top 10 online dating sites has tripled. Now hear from the star and host of MTV’s hit series CATFISH: THE TV SHOW, Nev Schulman, about his experiences and perspectives on this evolving medium.
