Purpose: “Like someone on campus? Wanna drop your fabulous friend a compliment to make his/her day? Submit it anonymously here”
Apparently, giving compliments via Facebook is so last year, because the last post on this page was March 23, 2015. If you ask me, it’s for the better. Telling your crush you like them over Facebook is never good style, people.
UNC Secret Admirer
Purpose: “Notice some beauty (booty) on campus? Did you scope out a hottie with a body? Tell us anonymously here!”
This page has more likes, but it’s running into similar difficulties. While it still gets posts, they’re extremely infrequent. Are people finally getting up the nerve to deliver compliments in person? Or is everyone just giving up on love? We may never know.
Also. Turns out that this page is for University of Northern Colorado, whoever that is. If you're wondering why your name never shows up as someone's crush, don't worry: that's most likely why.
If you’re looking for food (aren’t we all)
Purpose: “Phree Phood Events at UNC”
Clearly, people on this campus know what’s up: this page has more likes than both “love” pages combined. Go here if you need to find free food ASAP. You’ll probably have to go to a lecture or sign something to get said food, but it’s definitely worth it, right?
If you’re looking for weird stuff people say, or for those elusive keys
Overheard at UNC
Purpose: “There are ridiculous interactions around UNC all the time, and we've all been fortunate enough to be within hearing distance of one at some point or another. Share the wealth, post them here.”
Overheard is one of the most all-purpose Facebook pages I’ve seen. People post WAY more stuff than just things they hear. In fact, it seems that the majority of posts aren’t related to things overheard at all. Apparently people around campus aren’t that funny.
Spotted at UNC Chapel Hill
Purpose: “Do you wish to say something to someone or make a statement about life on campus? Please send us a message and we will upload it anonymously.”
This one is also very all-purpose. You can find just about anything here, from pictures of dogs, to pleas for lost wallets, to those ubiquitous surveys desperate people want you to take.
Lost and Found UNC
Purpose: “This Group is for Lost and Found posts at UNC - Chapel Hill”
This one is exactly what it sounds like. It’s super boring, so only follow it if you lost something or found something. Finders aren’t keepers, people.
