The research investigates the level of awareness of college students have about employers viewing their facebook content and impression management behavior. The study tested whether senior college students will have a higher awareness than freshman about their facebook content being looked at by future employers and that seniors will engage in more impression management. The study also tested whether level of awareness and level of impression management were related. A questionnaire was designed for the study and distributed to students at a private university. The study found no relation to year in college and levels of awareness or impression management. The study did find a relationship between levels of awareness and impression management.
