de-tagging diligence.

our 'tell all generation' has proven to actually use more censorship than those thirty plus on social media networking sites. in the recent ny times article, holson explains how those in their twenties are more conscious and aware of what is being shared on the internet than any other age bracket. in the Pew study, researchers interviewed 2,253 adults late last summer and found that people ages 18 to 29 were more apt to monitor privacy settings than older adults are, and they more often delete comments or remove their names from photos so they cannot be identified. younger teenagers were not included in these studies, and I am almost positive they do not have such diligence in their facebook sharing.
