Does Your Child Know Who Sees What They Post?


Last year an interesting New York Times article came out about a woman who posted a tweet she thought only 170 of her followers would see.

She thought it was a joke, but others interpreted it as offensive and racist. Someone who had seen the tweet shared it with the editor of a popular blog. When he shared it with his friends, it went viral. Soon she lost her job and was publicly humiliated.

Have you talked to your child about who sees what they post? Do they think about whether it could ever get them into trouble? This article may be a good discussion piece to talk through some of those issues.
