CollegeOnly

CollegeOnly isn’t reinventing the wheel with their new social network, instead they’ve went back to the good old days of Facebook when only College students with a valid college email address could join the network.

The networks founder told Mashable that he started the network because as Facebook continues to grow:

“College students are less likely to upload photos or post what they are up to with parents and potential employers looking on.”

How protected is the site? Even the sites founder is not allowed to join outside of being able to moderate the site and checking out the success of features added to the network.

The site makes this promise to students:

“Our site is the only one that is free from parents, potential employers, and other folks that shouldn’t see what you are up to on a Saturday night or at any given point during the day.”
