Twitter is “An Online Place Where You Keep Your Secrets”

26Dec08

A classmate once asked me, “So I know I should quit Facebook because my boss can see my profile… but I can just put all of those photos on Flickr, right? That will be safer?”

To which I replied, “Um… no. Not at all. Sorry:)”

As funny as this Jake and Amir video is, a sadly large amount of digital kids still think social networks can be trusted as “a lockbox” for your secrets (ie. party photos and textual confessions meant for your friends, that you don’t want your boss or your mom to see.)

I can’t wait for the first presidential election that features someone from our Facebook generation.
