For today’s youth, striving for acceptance among peers means tending to an online persona as they do their real selves. Divulging some personal information online is necessary to stay connected to people and even to accomplish more practical things like impressing a college recruiter.
But in the wake of the case of Tyler Clementi at Rutgers University, there is a renewed urgency in reminding and educating kids about not just one’s own privacy but that of another’s. We need to help them understand how to maintain privacy, what to expect others to do with their privacy, and how to respect the privacy of others.
