Last week we had a very productive discussion in our wellbeing session about online safety. The topic, a very relevant topic for students, was “What goes online, stays online”
We discussed who has rights over the photos we post, whether our online comments should be used by universities or future employers, and in general what consequences our online comments or pictures can have.
We looked at the case of a student who was expelled from Harvard because of online comments made a few years earlier.
The girls, although are seniors and claim to be aware of what they post, also commented that they are aware of the dangers that a post can make on their future.
The continuation of the discussion will be this week with the theme who are your followers? taking a look at social networks and who can be our friends.
