Kate Beckman writes about how open young people are in their social lives through social networking in “Discretion: Teens’ Greatest Fear.” I strongly agree with Kate’s writing. Before I sign into facebook, I can almost predict whose status I am going to see and what it is about, because the same people constantly write statuses just to gain attention. More than half of the statuses I see are completely absurd, I don’t want to hear about how yummy someone’s cookie was, and I really don’t want to see a picture of the cookie. There is no importance in these statuses, but they seem to be the most popular. It does not make sense to Kate or me, and I don’t think we will ever know.
