New trend of 'compliment' pages appreciating community members catching up on Facebook

Washington , Tue, 11 Dec 2012 ANI

Washington, Dec. 11 (ANI): A slew of "compliment" pages dedicated to certain universities and institutes has popped on Facebook, offering users the chance to anonymously post compliments about others in their community.

"Ashley Gilmore is a remarkable person. She seems to have a smile and comforting word for everyone she meets, and I never cease to be amazed by her strength and positive supportive nature," the New York Daily News quoted a message posted on "Queen's U Compliments," page as reading.

According to the report, four students at Queen's University in Ontario, Canada created the page back in September in hopes of fostering a positive atmosphere amidst reports of bullying at the institution.

"We thought [Queen's U Compliments] was a really great way to help students help other students," Amanda Smurthwaite, one of the founders, said.

Another founder, Rachel Albi, compared the page to "Pay It Forward," the 2000 film that follows a young boy trying to improve the world by encouraging people to perform good deeds, the report said.

Since Queen's U Compliment's launch, the page has amassed over 4,500 friends, more than 1,000 compliments and hundreds of copycat pages, it added.

Many major universities, including Columbia University, Penn State University and Brown University, have jumped on the trend, as well as several high schools across the U.S. The pages remain anonymous by asking users to send their compliments directly to an inbox, while administrators then take the messages and tag them so they appear in the intended recipient's News Feed, the report concluded.
