As the story of Manti Te’o and his hoax girlfriend story grows deeper and deeper, many have begun to be more and more careful developing relationships over social networks. The University of Michigan was well aware of the dangers of social media, but took an interesting route to address it.

Athletic Director David Brandon¬†spoke at a Toledo event recently¬†and let it be known that the athletic department had “catfished” some of its own athletes to teach them the dangers of social networks.

Brandon said the athletic department catfished several athletes to teach them the dangers of social networking. Very interesting. – @KyleRowland

Extremely interesting story.

You be the judge, is this a smart move by Michigan?
