Study: More colleges checking students' Facebook pages

Posted: Updated:

You may want to take a closer look at your kids' Facebook and Twitter pages before they send out their college applications.

A recent study from Kaplan says 31% of 381 admissions officers surveyed say they check an applicants Facebook page or other social media pages to learn more about them.

That's up 5% from last year and is the highest percentage yet.

But you may not have to be too worried, the number of admissions officers who say they found something that would hurt an applicant's chances dropped 5% from last year  to 30%.
