“After Years of Telling All, 20-Somethings Start to Clam Up ” – - ABC News
My first thoughts on this
1) Why does this make news?
2) Why are we so surprised? This news means young people are LEARNING. This medium brings with it incredible opportunities but also massive responsibilities. This shift to web awareness comes off the back of the countless number of people who have been burned by inappropriatly posted picture or comment that got into the wrong hands.
Students as well as professionals are now just as responsible for their reputation online as they are for it off it.
Who is teaching them these skills and responsibilities ?
Is it built into the curriculum?
If it is a big enough story to capture the attention of ABC News, should it not be?
