Neil Krasnoff's insight:

This article describes an initiative at a college. In my view, it's a too late to wait until the 3rd of 4th year to address digital footprint issues. These efforts described are needed to help young adults successfully enter the workforce, which is why I'm posting about it. However, I advocate for starting much younger and emphasizing 'doing good' on social media while in high school.
