Karachi: The new wave of confession pages on Facebook is causing trouble and making lives of student miserable.

These pages have sprouted all over Karachi and are run by school-going teenagers. Most schools have their own pages.

First thing that will hit on these pages is graphically explicit content. Students – in what are arguably the top schools of the city – have found this medium to express illicit sexual desires for each other.

Entries vary from mostly anonymous confessions of adoration for a certain peer, to posts that claim that fellow students are homosexual.

Beneath this plethora of sex-crazed comments, specific students are targeted on these pages for being different. Personal remarks are made based on appearances.
