>>411>Kids will realize someday that the information they are posting carelessly will hurt their image or future aspects. Or even play with that info against their own character.
The gracefully named "The right to be forgotten", and it's becoming more and more extinct as time goes on, alas.
This, plus separation of identities gives so much freedom, to experiment, or just do whatever, and makes for truly unique experience, but few seem to recognise it nowadays.>My life is as boring as Applejack's one (and even then,she has more adventures than me every now and then)
This, so much this. I could conjecture that I have some interests, but the moment a person with real interest/hobby in something shows up, it's plainly obvious how the conjecture is false.>I have no fear of anything because ponies,music and sometimes games, have placed me in a balanced way of expressing myself but staying on topic that my personal experiences feel secondary or a bonus,not the focus. Nobody can put me into a dangerous situation just for that unless I turn into a political activist 24/7.
Feels weird to write "This" under every paragraph, but, same here, I don't have any friends so that means I don't have any secrets to keep, and also because of no friends I get into no occurrences that would make me any enemies, and keeping my mouth shut most of the time instead of yapping about >muh opinions all the time also helps.
Maybe exposing me as someone who likes ponies could grant me some weird looks and some little troubles lol, but then the few whole 1
people who know have no incentive to do so whatsoever.
So yeah, pretty boring slow life in this department, but I wouldn't want it any other way.>Even if kids or even adults were warned about the dangers of social media,not many would actually pay attention until the consequences happen.
And here, separation of identities and/or the right to be forgotten is precisely the key.
Doing something stupid under pseudonym is going to bring a lot less trouble, and one still can learn from it. It actually happened all the time, back in the days.
But now people seem to have forgotten.>I would end up being a very different person than what I am today
I sometimes wonder how would I end up if I didn't find out about MLP. And every time I'm not quite able to answer, because of how for the past almost 6 years ponies were huge, if not the biggest, part of my life, and my personality is heavily influenced by that fact.
