As we begin to embrace social media as an avenue to connect with friends, family and acquaintances - it's also imperative that we're mindful of who we friend and how we're sharing our data and interacting with applications, as Take This Lollipop illustrates. Though it may be an extreme visualization of the potential that's possible, there's important take-aways to consider as we engage on social platforms. Additionally, as our senior and early boomer population continues to adopt social media and push these social networks, like Facebook, to grow - it's also important that we educate our friends and family members (mothers, fathers, or grandparents) of the potential risks with sharing and engaging on social platforms.
