Getting through High School can be a hellish experience. Dealing with a hundred different cliques, while trying to keep your grades up and paying off that new car. And at the end of it all, you have to figure out which college you want to go to and what you’re going to do for the rest of your life. This is not something you really want to think about when you are just trying to get that cute girl or guy to look your way. But now there is something new, something simple that can help you figure out college and the future and it’s just one little button. The “share” button.
Everyone has clicked on Facebook’s “Like” button at some point or another. It’s a great way to let your friends know what you like or that you like them and anybody who’s anybody has one in their blog or website. Watching your “likes” increase is just another bit of encouragement to keep doing what you like to do. The “share” button works a lot like that only it does so much more. You have your hopes and dreams for the future, becoming a news anchor or a computer programmer, all you have to do is write it down and the “share” button will do the rest.
How does it Work?
It is as simple as visiting their website and creating a profile. While most profiles want you to feel out a bunch of stuff related to every little piece of your life, all they want is what you are looking for in a college. Do you have any majors you are interested in? Do you want to stay in state or get as far away as possible? Are you more interested in public or private? What kind of end goal do you think you are looking for? And several others.
Once you have your profile filled out and registered, we will put the “share” button on any blog, website or profile page that you want. The more, the better so that it becomes even easier for others to share with you. With this button anyone who comes to your site who also has a share account can click it, view your profile and send you personal messages, links or advice that can help you narrow down what universities you are thinking about.
Of course, your opinion of the future is going to be changing a lot depending on how your grades are and which classes you find that you hate and which you love. With just one click you can edit your profile and give ever clearer versions of your plans.
Just like any social network, using the “share” button is about connecting with people who have the same interests, hopes and fears as you. When planning for college, this can add even more tension. You can’t just wait for people to click on your button, if you find an interesting article or piece of information about a college course or scholarship opportunity, pass it around to anyone on your share list.
The “share” button is a new and innovative way to figure out what you want to do in the future. It also helps you discover that you are not alone and that there are others out there who want to help.
