President Barack Obama advised children who want to be president to beware of Facebook.
“I want everybody here to be careful about what you post on Facebook,” Obama told a group of ninth graders before making a back-to-school speech at Wakefield High School in Virginia.
“Because in the YouTube age, whatever you do, it will be pulled up again later somewhere in your life. And when you’re young, you make mistakes and you do some stupid stuff. ”
Sounds like some wise advice, but whether the kids will listen to it is another story… high school without letting loose on Facebook? NVRGH (Never Gonna Happen for those unfamiliar with the lingo).
Critics since last week have been screaming that Obama’s education speech was only a ploy to advance his political agenda. A handful of them greeted his motorcade with signs like”Mr. President, Stay Away From Our Kids,” and “Children Serve God, Not Obama.”
