Some good thoughts here. I like your approach of being informed and developing habits. Perhaps that’s the conversation we need to be having with kids. What are those habits? What are the variety of ways to use social media? My fear or concern lies in the fact that we’ve perhaps undersestimated the power these have over us as well as the deleterious content that emerges no matter where you turn. But maybe there are better habits than most of us use that could neutralize the negative effects.
For the record, while I don’t subscribe to blogs anymore, I do read yours on occasion and appreciate your contributions and commitment to sharing.
