They arent as smart as the article would like us to think. If thats the case, why are teen girls blasting their info out there, meeting guys they dont know online (theres one that just recently came up missing 15 years old left her home to meet someone she met online and never came home) Theyre posting their phone numbers, addresses, etc...I have teenage nieces and nephews and both are equally stupid when it comes to social media. Just go and look at most teenagers posts. Its become the battle ground for who can get pregnant faster, calling each other dirty nasty names, blasting each other's business, grabbing attention, bullying, fighting, posting scantily clad photos of themselves. The guys are just a guilty as well. The language is vile, the party pics are ridiculous, its insane. Honestly, why arent parents looking at these pages? Social media is horrible for kids today, Im sorry Ill probably get a lot of thumbs down but it is absolutely the truth! Now instead of dealing with teenage drama, its everywhere. And these are the people we are training to run our country some day. I could go on more about the crap I see on there but Im sure Im rambling too much at this point.

I understand where you are coming from newslover, but adults do the same thing. Doesn't really just pertain to kids.
