With the recent closing of Juicy Campus, students nationwide were left scouring the internet, in search of an honest, and engaging, web-based community. They have found the Anonymous Confession Board.
The Anonymous Confession Board, or the ACB, is quickly becoming the central hub of college campuses around the country, giving students the freedom to voice their opinions and ask questions about any facet of college life. It is the campus center, the dorm room, the cafeteria, and the lecture hall, all combined into a single, easily accessible forum where everyone is invited to converse openly, without fear of reprisal or reprimand. From sexuality to politics, from keg parties to concerns about course selections, the ACB is a website that helps build community and engenders the open exchange of information.
A relative newcomer, the ACB was originally developed by recent college graduates Andrew Mann of JHU and Aaron Larner of Wesleyan University. It is now owned and operated by Peter Frank, a current freshman at Wesleyan University. The site is devoted to promoting actual discussion, not provoking salacious posts or personal attacks. Its mission statement reads: "The College ACB or College Anonymous Confession Board seeks to give students a place to vent, rant, and talk to college peers in an environment free from social constraints and about subjects that might otherwise be taboo."
Such a philosophy sets the ACB apart from Juicy Campus, a website that fostered superficial interactions, often derogatory and needlessly crude. By contrast, the ACB consistently hosts a higher level of discourse -- while still making room for the occasional gossip post.
Other differences between the ACB and the now-defunct Juicy prove more than superficial. The ACB employs an innovative user-moderation button, which allows for easy yet unobtrusive regulation. Any post that might be threatening, libelous, or otherwise illegal, is immediately brought to the webmaster's attention. In addition, the ACB provides a more personal experience for the user, as it is organized into individual college boards. And unlike other college boards, the web space is not overcrowded with ads. Lastly, it is worth noting that the ACB has embarked upon an expansion phase -- several new features will be unveiled in the coming months.
Contact info: For now, all e-mail should be diverted to collegeacb(at)gmail.com. Anyone can feel free to post, but only users who register (for free) will be able to take advantage of the special features (private messaging, etc). If you are curious, please head on over to CollegeACB.com, find your own ACB, and enjoy the discussions.
Note: Not all functionality is working, as we are in the process of accommodating the influx of new campus users.
