Crafting a strong and well-balanced social media policy requires considerable time and effort. The policy must be flexible enough to accommodate new tech trends yet thorough and specific.

Oh boy, oh boy!  When I was a student, we worked like blazes becoz we had to or we'd've failed, but we had FUN too - lots and lots of it!  Now these poor devils are being analysed to death - and not even good jobs at the end of it -  Guys, u woz robbed...  the world has just been computerised to death!   Kids, take my advice, Have Fun  - don't look back on your student days and sigh for lost opportunities.
