I have been using the internet for more than a decade. My first social media profile I made in 2006/2007. It was site called Nexopia which was really popular in my school and all of my friends had a profile. It’s so weird that I felt like that I had one to stay in touch with my fiends when I saw them EVERYDAY at school. It’s nuts.
Today I have a few social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). I don’t share a lot on my social media accounts. I share the odd picture but I don’t share my world, political, religious views or what is happening in my day to day life. That is why twitter is really hard for me to get into because it is something that needs you to share who you are to use it. As far as a blog goes, it is also something that I have been getting used to sharing my thoughts and ideas to the world. It is a great place to express myself, but sometimes I have troubles getting myself to do so.
When teaching students about building their own digital citizenship I want to make sure that they feel comfortable about what their sharing and how much their sharing. Sometimes I think that some people over share, to each their own, but for me I just don’t feel comfortable sharing too much about myself.
