More and more kids are being bullied on social media, few even losing their lives. Also a lot of them spoil their future job possibilities by posting something stupid online because they don't understand future employers must be watching.

    Feb 27 2013: Social media, like all other things, must be used in moderation. I am a child of the Technology Era, and many, if not all, of my friends, peers, etc. use social media to communicate and express themselves. Schools have the responsibility of educating people in the ways of the world, and if schools are to continue this job, they must adapt to the changing times, at the same time preserving its core purpose. Students should have the ability to effectively use social media to further their lives/careers, but they should also understand that potential employers do look at social media profiles.
