On 10 year birthday students talk Facebook

Posted: Updated:

Many of these Patrick Henry 8th graders didn't know Facebook is celebrating its 10 year birthday.

"It's really old," said Emily Harms.

And now, we're all feeling much older. In fact, many of us remember the days where there wasn't Facebook. Despite there now being countless classes being taught on Mark Zuckerberg's company, the fundamentals remain the same.

"What's a good post? What's a bad post? Should I share this on Facebook because once I push send it's out there," said Dan Kirsch, an information communications technology teacher at Patrick Henry.

What he's telling his students is sinking in.

"Like we shouldn't put our age and important stuff that somebody could take," said Harms.

Kirsch also tells his students not to believe everything they see on Facebook.

"Read it, research it and then determine if it's valid."

Considering how much Facebook seeps into our everyday lives it can be tough for people, particularly young students, to keep everything straight.

"Sometimes, but then sometimes you forget and then you regret it but then your parents help you through it and teachers and everything," said Harms.

Added Kirsch, "It's not a platform they have to be afraid of but just keep your wits about you."
