Come on Shannon! Why warn these morons about things like this? Kids these days are so technically savvy and self absorbed in this technology, they are forgetting how to interact with real people. The more connected they become, the more disconnected from reality they become. Most kids these days would rather text or email that talk with a friend. They would rather interact with people through Facebook or MySpace. What ever happened to hanging out with your friends for conversation and experiences? Let these idiots find out for themselves what happens when you expose everything about yourself to the world. Don't think that just schools are checking up on their athletes. Many employers are checking up online about potential new hires.

Great job, and very good stuff. I read this on my sports show in Oklahoma City and got confirming responses. Time to grow up and know the internet isn't for a small group any more.

Excellent advise!

As the mother of teenage athletes this information is so helpful in supporting my desire to ensure that they present themselves in the best possible light - especially online!
