The Inbetweeners Vs. The University of Lincoln Causes Facebook Frenzy

inbetweeners

Lincoln University received an unexpected negative mention last week on the popular TV comedy, The Inbetweeners. As Lincoln was described as a “shit hole” and  the university was mocked  with the line: “…goodbye first-rate education, hello the University of Lincoln”

This obviously caused a stir at the University of Lincoln and existing and ex students responded within seconds. Several people updated their Facebook status to stress their feelings towards the controversial comment. The following group was created and within hours over 5,000 people liked the group to show their support. It now has over 13,000 facebook users ‘liking it’ which is another great example of how social media reaches out to a mass audience in a very fast and effective way.
