WLOX Editorial: Social media education puts kids on the right path

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Once you post it, it's out there forever. That's the message from the Gulfport School District. Social media is a huge part of lives across our society.

We are glad to see the school district educating students on social media. Videos you post today can have negative consequences down the road. Or our posts from today can have positive results.

We agree with the school's effort to reduce posting of bad behavior by focusing on getting their hearts in the right place. We are not suggesting that anyone shouldn't post their opinion. But bad behavior and hurtful posts just because you can, is wrong.

We applaud the school's efforts in social media education. That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
