Making the case for Social Media Education

Over a year ago, I gave a talk to local high school students about my career. The conversation eventually turned to social media.

10 months ago, I wrote this post, Should Social Media be a separate college course?

Just like there are training wheels, driving lessons and hygiene class, there should be a course on the high school level that explains the both the risks and benefits of social media.

Common sense like, you don’t have to friend everyone, and  that don’t have to hug every person should also be stressed.

Of course  as stated on The View , parents are learning social media along with the parents, so of course students are experimenting and pushing boundaries.

Also what you post or what others may post can cause serious repercussions, either immediately or how it may impact your future.
