  1. We as teens are not aware of what is out there and how much one simple post could affect us. We are simply cought up on tye fact that we want to look “cool” online and that is not the case it goes far and beyond that. We are putting ourselfs in danger every time we treat the computer as our diary. We are constatly perseived as person and a profesional and its time we take it into consideration. Now I’am more aware of how delicated it is to put myslef out there and how it can effect me in the future in many ways. I will think twice of what I’am posting and ask myslef if it could make a diffrence in my future and effect me in any way. The internet is a really helpful but harmful weapon therefore we should treat it as a resource. I will be very careful on what i post and how i post it for it not to affect my future.

  2. “The Google yourself challenge” was a great way to see how much media we are in, how much things we post up without realizing who is watching us online, also on how we look towards an employee or college recruiter. I feel like ” The Google Yourself challenge” will help students be more careful with what they post online and to watch what they get tagged in or what their friends post about them online.
