Social media posts by teens

If ever you were in any doubt that what you post on the Internet can have severe, far-reaching consequences, here's a Wall Street Journal story that discusses how such posts on Facebook and Google+ can affect admissions into a college of choice.

The article contains pithy descriptions of what college admissions personnel often find when they run an internet search.

As Immanuel Kant would say (in a paraphrase updated for today's world), don't say anything on the internet that you wouldn't be comfortable with anyone hearing or seeing or reading.
