Obama’s Advise to School Students on Using Facebook

Obama recently advised a group of school students that they need to be very careful about what they post in Facebook and other social networking sites. Stupid posts on such sites can haunt you back later. Many organizations are using LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook to know more about their prospective employee. Not only Facebook, a video posted on YouTube can ruin as it can be pulled up sometime later. Who knows, you may need to pay for the words which came out from you on these sites much-much earlier in your life.
Obama, himself was a victim for couple of times to the YouTube age, when some off-the-mark remarks came up on YouTube and blogs.

One young person asked the president whom he would choose to dine with if he could make only one such selection. "Gandhi," Obama replied. "He's somebody I find a lot of inspiration in. He inspired Dr. (Martin Luther) King" with his message of non-violence. "He ended up doing so much and changed the world just by the power of his ethics," Obama said of the inspirational leader Mahatma Gandhi.

Obama also says: "At the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents and the best schools in the world, and none of it will matter unless all of you fulfill your responsibilities."
