A sign of wisdom among the young? I think so.
For many teens who have been on social media since they were in the single digits, grappling with their emerging adulthood in real time is forcing them to take a hard look at how they present themselves. As a result, they are routinely culling their Instagram feeds and deleting posts just days or even hours after they go up.
Deciding what’s printable, becoming editors. Every writer needs one.
“My generation is getting so much better at managing who we are online,” said Bree Ford, a 16-year-old in Harrisburg, Pa. “There have been times when I’ve been frustrated with something and I’ll post about it and then I don’t want it up there anymore, so I delete it. No one needs to see that if I’m going to get over it in an hour.”
Words of wisdom.
