Should social media be taught in school?

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 28 2013: I don't think that it's a responsibility of school by any means.

    I think that each person should learn it and decide it by himself. If a man doesn't understand that we live in the era of wide spread social networks and that any person can observe any of his actions in social networks and that his actions can affect his life, then maybe he doesn't deserve to be hired?

    There is something we can do though. Any social network can create a pop-up upon registration that warns user about possible consequences of his actions. This would be much more reasonable.
