So the next time you find yourself grumping about people sharing a selfie, a cheesy image quote, a picture of their dog, a sunset, their coffee, or any other life event -- consider that maybe it's not about them being too "me" focused, but about how much you really care about hearing about them at that particular moment in time.
Hardly a day goes by that you can't log into one of those services and see your "friends" talking about airport delays, creating their own vacation trip hashtags or Instagramming pictures of where they are -- thereby letting the world at large know where they aren't. And if adults can't resist, you know teenagers can't.
I commend the Academy for its efforts and intent, and it is revelatory to see that despite advances in mobile phones, iPads, computers, and the learning tools delivered by them, the group still questions their efficacy in the healthy upbringing of a child. At the same time I question some of their recommendations.
