Re: General rule
I agree. The luxury that most of us grew up in a limited technological age (ie grew up without the Internet and cell phones!) gives us the benefit of luckily having missed a lot of the mistakes that a lot of millenials are dealing with right now. Being young and thinking that you have a right to post anything without fear of consequence is a very new problem that realistically is a result of younger generations being the first fully-connected social groups. Throw in inexperience, and the typical rebel behaviour that all generations get, and well, the poor youth have a hard awakening. As they get into the full-fledged work force, services like ThinkUp should be a great reminder that yeah, those stupid comments that you thought were awesome at the time, probably doesn't reflect the best on you to potential employers.
