Social media is a phenomenon that has taken over everyone's lives. It has been used for a lot of great things but it has also been used for a lot of bad things. In the old days we did not document every single minute of our lives as we do now. And that is fine if you are just documenting your life. But in today's society others are documenting your life and sometimes without even you knowing about it. The worst part is that you must always be aware of your surroundings and always do the right thing so you do not get caught in bad situations where someone may document them through social media.
Student athletes have even more to fear as they must live by the university's code of conduct they must not put themselves in situations that can harm them. If the school code of conduct says no drinking on campus do not get caught drinking a beer and then take a selfie with your buddies. That selfie will wind up on social media by someone posting it and coming back to the university to harm you, maybe get you kicked off the team or even campus. Athletes have worked so hard to earn that scholarship and play on a university team. Don't let a foolish moment ruin your college experience.
Who knows maybe social media will force us to better behave and make us more responsible or completely destroy our lives.
