Diaries are so passé. If you really want to pour your heart out, Facebook seems to be the popular place to do it. Instead of disclosing intimate details through journaling, students are taking to the social network to reveal their innermost secrets

Confessions range in topics from hygienic habits (“I love binge drinking for the sole reason that the next day poops are the most satisfying I’ve ever had”) to personal struggles (“I’m having trouble deciding if life is worth it”).
