Public and Permanent is not on the mind of most teenage cell phone users. A recent Pew Study indicates that most young people have migrated to messaging apps that self destruct, such as snapchat and Kik. Teens are under the belief that once their messages are deleted no one can ever access them again. Unfortunately, many young people have found out the hard way through sexstortion attempts that whatever is posted on line is public and permanent. On this episode of the Digital Parent Podcast, my friend Richard Guerry and I destroy the privacy myth and indicate why everything you type and post on line is Public and Permanent.
Richard Guerry is the founder of the non-profit organization the Institute for Responsible Online and Cell-Phone Communication (IROC2).Richard is also the author of multiple cyber safety and citizenship books, and has been a featured speaker at many national conferences and conventions.
He has also appeared as a digital safety expert on various media outlets like CNN, Radio Disney, MTV, Parade Magazine and many other local, regional, and international networks and publications.
