No Selfies At Graduation

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Two schools’ seemingly simple advice to graduates is generating headlines.

The University of South Florida in Tampa and Bryant University in Smithfield, R.I., have asked the cap-and-gown set to refrain from selfies as they collect their diplomas.

Administrators saw their directives as innocuous, but they’ve stood out for placing the slightest curtailment on some students’ nonstop use of social media.

The schools say they’re simply trying to keep already long ceremonies from dragging on even longer.

But some wonder if the bans might backfire and prompt even more students to stop for self-portraits.
