HarvardIn yesterday’s Times, we looked at Facebook, college kids and roommate compatibility. But you may also be interested in seeing the results of a reader poll on whether it’s appropriate for parents to monitor their college-age kids’ social lives online. As of 9 o’clock this morning, 263 people had voted and the tally was running heavily in favor of “monitoring,” with 81 percent saying “As long as I’m paying the bills, I’m the parent and I’ll check regularly,” and just 7 percent saying “No, they’re supposed to be adults.” Interesting comments posted too. Check it out, and add your comments to the poll page or do it right here by clicking “comments.”

And if you have someone headed off to college, you might find these roommate compatibility tips helpful too.
