LOVE this quote, and paradigm shift in thinking;
"Instagram is not just a camera app, although many younger kids fooled their parents by convincing them that it was a camera app. Instead, it’s a full blown social network where pictures of the catalysts for conversations and Likes and followers are the currency of shallow capitalism."
wow very cool article backed by some really solid date, which I love.
Also, I liked this (well, not sure if I liked the meaning, but I thought it was useful) "Privacy as we once knew it is dead. It’s now a part of real and digital
life that necessitates education and ongoing study. Parents, teachers,
mentors, role models, take note. Pleading ignorance is not an excuse."
Great article. The "teens share more information about themselves on social media than ever before" stats are interesting, but I wonder if that's simply because social networks have made it easier to upload that type of information, rather than more teens wanting to upload it. Probably a combo of the two.
