Melissa Bour is a sixth-grade teacher from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Recently, she wanted to teach her students a lesson about Social Media and why they shouldn’t post photos and other material that they may regret.
She posted this picture of a message she wrote to her Facebook page:
The letter reads:
“My 12-year-old students think it is ‘no big deal’ that they are posting pictures of themselves in bras or with their middle finger in the air. Please help me out by sharing this image and commenting with where you live to show these young students how quickly their images can get around.”
Bour has since deleted her original post but copies are still in circulation. So, another valuable lesson: just because you delete a social media post does not mean it’s gone forever. Be careful what you post!
