Via social media, people are sharing more and more online. The aggregation of their various profiles (facebook, myspace, friendfeed, etc.) can create a near mirror reflection of their real world actions and feelings.
We have the power to empathize better then ever, to understand people in a new light. How can we use that to preempt mental downswings, specifically in kids?
Thinking here: You canâ€™t just watch over and swoop in every time you see something negative. What is the balance? Should we have social workers trolling profiles for â€œsigns.â€ Will we just develop the sense to tell if someone is having a hard time. Iâ€™m talking about preventing tragic events – every time they happen it seems it was all over the students profile. right. So what can we do?
