ARLINGTON, Va. – President Barack Obama went forward with a controversial speech to students nationwide Tuesday, preceding it by advising young people at a suburban Virginia school to "be careful what you post on Facebook."
"Whatever you do," he told them, "it will be pulled up later in your life."
I don't get it. I don't use these things but I know alot of people that do. So I began to wonder about this.
That seems to be a pretty ominous statement. I have seen alot on the internet about facebook and myspace being used to spy on people's personal lives, but I never paid any mind to it (I mean there is a conspiravy theory behind everything today). But by the president openly stating that it will be pulled up later in life is kind of unnerving. I mean, knowing that something most people probably don't take serious may be used against you for whatever is... well, kind of odd I guess.
I may be misreading the statements, I don't know. I just figured I'd share and see what people's thoughts were.
I really don't know what to make out of this satement.
