Holy Family students in month-long Facebook Challenge

For 30 days, willing students at Holy Family University are giving up Facebook. A small percentage of the student body is taking up the “Facebook Challenge” as a way to determine just how — and how often — they’re using the social networking site.One half of one percent of the 3,500 students at the Northeast and Bucks County campuses are participating. They’ll hold weekly support group meetings to see how everyone’s getting along.

For some, it’s about giving up an addiction, for others, it’s all about moderation. For everyone, it’ll be a challenge.
