Instagrim: Why Social Media Makes Students Miserable

Donna Freitas, The Chronicle of Higher Education, May 09, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The gist of this article is that people can't be themselves any more on social media, that they have to edit their social media feeds and essentially 'professionalize' their online presence, and that this has in turn caused unhappiness in the student population. My own take is that the possibility of exposure on social media has made them clean up their act, and if this causes them stress and hardship, I'm sure they can learn to deal with it.
