//__Writer's Name:__// Erika Wheelhouse

//__Working title __// Catfish Trending (or review?)

//__What will the article cover? What will it be about?__// The new mtv series catfish is popular with the college aged viewers. It is about people who meet online and eventually want to meet up only to find out their significant other is hiding something. The article will talk about this upcoming phenomenon with meeting online, how social networking plays a role, the manti te'o girlfriend hoax, and the different reasons people look for relationships online rather than in person. I don't want the focus to be on the online dating sites. I want it more aimed at meeting through social networking sites.
