Facebook Should Use Shibboleth to Restrict Access

I was going to write this lengthy article on why Facebook should shibbolize their service and how this could be done. But instead of the long article with a lot of techy talk, I'll make it a short article.

Facebook should shibbolize its service such that only students of Universities can access students' pages.

There... that was much easier to write than a long article.

    Hey, I'm doing an observer article regarding facebook and alcohol and privacy and the like. I'd like to discuss this Shibbolizing concept with you, how would it work, why would we want to use it, etc.

    Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you.
