A campaign by Facebook and Media Smarts especially directed to teens, but important for all of us Facebook users. This is what they communicate:
We always hear that sharing is a good thing. And thanks to technology we can share our ideas, opinions, pictures and videos with our friends and other people.
Most of the time, sharing is good. But if we aren’t thoughtful about how we share, we run the risk of hurting ourselves or someone else. Also, remember that the things you share with your friends can end up being shared with others. That’s why it’s important to think before you share.
Being able to be spontaneous is a great gift and the new technologies speed us up enormously, but give it that one minute to preview what we could provoke.
I personally think the same applies for talking. Think before you talk could prevent a lot of problems, misunderstandings and sorrow.
