How do you feel about following recruits on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and whatever app was just invented in the last five seconds?
Well, beginning Monday, that useless information could become amplified through your respective feeds five or tenfold.
New social media regulations for coaches interacting with recruits start Monday. Allowed to like and share, but not comment. #ClickDontType

As if the average recruit wasn’t already artificially inflated enough by social media fame, now their “New Top 15 No Interviews” edits could be retweeted by each staff member on every school in that top 15. And, worse, said recruit could drop a school that doesn’t “show enough love” through likes and retweets.
That could be an overly cynical view of what’s to come, but if there’s one thing I’ve found to be true it’s that all’s fair in love and recruiting.
