Somebody needs to give the "cool kids" a hard lesson.
To me all this social media (and video sites etc) is more of a cultural problem than a technical one. People have decided that they're prepared to share almost everything regardless of the consequences. Even people doing illegal things upload video (from a cameraphone etc) to EweToob and soon thereafter get arrested.
I'm sure a number of us did things in our youth that we'd rather not have made public. Fortunately in my day embarrassing stuff didn't travel far (only to family, friends etc) and with the passage of time and distance stuff has been forgotten.
We now live in an era where that is not true. Photo's, video and text comments will live on forever although they may change form. Someone Googling (or whatever we have then) you in 30 years will be able to pull up all that stuff in an instant.
But as you said
quote:Bummer for them.
I don't think "cool kids" do history though.
Don't feed trolls--it only makes them grow!
