6 ways social media can ruin your life Cautionary tales of Facebook fails, Twitter traps, and Insta-gaffes.

A great post from the Boston Globe this week on
6 ways social media can ruin your life  Cautionary tales of Facebook fails, Twitter traps, and Insta-gaffes.
Here is the link bit.ly/1oSFJKG

I have talking with students this semester about their digital footprint and using current events.  This approach has allowed lots of interesting conversation and reflection.  However, I also like to highlight the benefits of using social media to connect with community, colleges and potential internships and jobs.  The article is a great reminder to students there are consequences for online posting so the should THINK before the post!

I am looking forward to discussing this article in class this week and will encourage other staff members to join me!
