Do college admissions officers really check things like facebook?
Can they even see my profile if I have it set to private?
The reason I'm concerned is that a few friends have tagged pictures of me holding a beer. It's not even my beer, I don't drink (whether you believe me or not, whatever) and moreover, it's legal here in Germany to drink when you are 16.
BUT, I'm concerned that if my profile is checked in any sort of depth, these pictures may pop up and, out of context, it could look bad for me.
So: can they even SEE these if my profile is set to "friends only"? Should I not take the risk and untag these photos, at least for now?
